Birds of Peru

T S Schulenberg, D F Stotz, D F Lane, J P O'Neill & T A Parker

With over 1 800 species, Peru has the second richest avifauna of any country in the world. As a consequence it is one of the most popular birding destinations in South America.

This is the first comprehensive and fully illustrated field guide to the birds of Peru. The text is arranged opposite the plates, in conventional field guide manner. Each species account includes a distribution map, distribution, abundance, length, elevation, habitat, behaviour, and extensive notes on vocalisations. English and scientific bird names are given. This is the 2010 reprint that features a few amendments and includes 3 new plates.

"[If] any place needed a field guide, it was Peru, second only to Columbia as the most bird-rich country in the world [...] Now, 40 years after he first envisioned a field guide, [John] O'Neill and his principal co-authors, Tom Schulenberg and Doug Stotz, have finally completed the guide against which all others for the New World tropics will be judged [...] The Birds of Peru's nearly 4 000 colour illustrations alone - more than double that of any other single-country Neotropics guide - set it apart [...] [It] is the culmination of an incredible amount of fieldwork, but that doesn't mean the exploration is finished [...] This book isn't the end; it's really the beginning."
