Birds of Panama

George R Angehr & Robert Dean

This user-friendly, portable, and affordable ID guide features:

  • large colour illustrations of more than 900 species.
  • the first range maps published to show the distribution of Panama's birds.
  • concise text that describes field marks for identification, as well as habitat, behaviour, and vocalisations.
  • range maps and species accounts face illustration pages for quick, easy reference.
  • the inclusion of North American migrants and seabirds, as well as female and juvenile plumage variations.
  • an up-to-date species list for the country that reflects recent additions, taxonomic splits, and other changes in classification.

Panama's unique geography, small size, and varied habitats make it possible to see a vast diversity of birds within a short time. Its western and central areas harbour representatives of species found in Central America; species characteristic of South America may be found in the east. In the winter, birds from northern climes are commonly found in Panama as migrants. This is the one field guide the novice or experienced birder needs to identify birds in the field in Panama's diverse habitats.

"This ambitious new guide is surely the most user-friendly neotropical bird guide to date. With excellent illustrations of every species (including migrants from the north), up-to-date range maps alongside the illustrations, and clear and concise text, it should be a very welcome addition to any traveller's library."
