A Field Guide to the Birds of Brazil

Ber van Perlo

Here is the first comprehensive field guide to cover the full range of bird life in this vast and varied country. They are all here--every species and many subspecies found in each region of Brazil--with special attention given to the 218 Brazilian endemics. The book is laid out so that the illustrations sit across from the commentary and the distribution maps, so it is easy to use. For each bird, the book provides detailed information on measurement; identifying features; habitat; voice, song, and call. Finally, the book is compact and easy to carry in the field.
