Voices of Amazonian Birds - Volume 1:Tinamous through barbets

The rainforests of the Amazon basin host the widest diversity of birds of any place on Earth. Features the 99 bird species from Tinamous to Barbets, found in the lowland rainforests of the western Amazon basin.. The geographic area covered on this audio guide ranges from southern Peru into northern Bolivia. Our emphasis here is on birds of mature forest, although we have included the voices of a few species, more often heard than seen, that are found in second-growth or the edge of forest. Because the distribution of many of these species extends beyond this region, this guide will be useful in adjacent areas as well. 24 page booklet insert. 67 min.
