Birds of Northwest Ecuador vol II: The Lowlands and Lower Foothills

Birds of Northwest Ecuador vol II: The Lowlands and Lower Foothills

Olaf Jahn, John V Moore et al

Features 467 separate vocalisations from 253 species found in the humid and wet tropical forests of North-western Ecuador, many of which have never been published.

The goal of this summary version is to present the more often heard, most typical and spectacular bird sounds to the broader public. The area covered belongs to the "Chocó Endemic Area", which extends northward into western Colombia. It supports an exceptionally rich birdlife and the highest number of endemic bird species of any biogeographic region in South America.
