9780713664188: Birds of Venezuela (Helm Field Guides)

A field handbook covering one of the most bird-rich countries in the world - Venezuela. Over 1300 species are described and illustrated in the work, which is a completely reworked new edition of the Princeton title A Guide to the Birds of Venezuela", first published in 1978. The text of that book has been replaced with a new text by another author. Of the 67 plates, 27 are new, and the volume as a whole is over twice the length of its predecessor. Unlike the earlier title, this guide includes a distribution map for every species, using shading for wide-ranging species and locality dots for rarer birds."

From the Back Cover:


"The Birds of Venezuela has come of age. The first edition was a marvel when it appeared back in 1978: the first book on a South American avifauna to be accurately and beautifully illustrated, by Guy Tudor. Now Steve Hilty has given us a text to match the quality of the plates, which themselves have here been substantially expanded by John Gwynne. Good succinct behavioral and vocal information, accurate and clear distribution maps, and lots of new ID information, all combine to be just what field observers and ornithologists have wanted. It was worth the wait."--Robert Ridgely, Director, International Bird Conservation, National Audubon Society
