Samenvatting

Winner of the 2007 National Outdoor Book Award (NOBA) for Nature Guidebooks The two companion volumes of this extensive and detailed guide make a groundbreaking contribution to bird guide literature: they not only provide detailed accounts of every known bird species in the vast region from Ecuador to French Guiana but also, for the first time, illustrate virtually every plumage variation in full color. The illustrations include adult males and females where different as well as intermediate plumages, juveniles, subspecies, morphs and other variants, and several hypothetical and unconfirmed species. In all, nearly 6,400 birds are depicted. Black-and-white drawings of significant aspects of plumage or behavior are also provided, as are color maps showing river systems, political boundaries and the confirmed distribution of all the species. Volume 1 presents extensive species accounts, including information on habitat, vocalization, nomenclature, and the very latest taxonomy to subspecies level. An up-to-date discography lists all published CDs that contain recordings of birds of northern South America. Volume 2, designed for use in the field, contains complete range maps, Robin Restall's immaculate and jewel-like paintings, and information about specific marks, habitat, and behavior to aid in identification.

Recensie(s)

This remarkable work consists of two volumes: the first with written descriptions of the birds, and the second with color plates portraying over 2,300 species in almost every distinct plumage. Quite simply, Birds of Northern South America is a tour de force. --From the National Outdoor Book Award Citation An indispensable addition to the myriad birdlife of the region. --Charles E. Keller, Indiana Audobon Quarterly Winner of the 2007 National Outdoor Book Award (NOBA) for Nature Guidebooks No other work offers as complete an overview of plumages. An important resource for birders and ornithologists. --Noble Proctor, ornithologist I predict that every serious birder and ornithologist visiting northern South America will carry this invaluable guide. --Robert Askins, ornithologist A brilliant and original work destined to become a classic reference for museum and field workers alike. --Steve Hilty, author of Birds of Venezuela No other work offers as complete an overview of plumages.

    Geschreven bij Birds of Northern South America

    Volume 2 van de set is opgemaakt uit tekeningen: mannetje, vrouwtje, juveniel en ondersoorten. Het besteed extra aandacht aan de details en specifieke kenmerken waardoor het ook zonder Volume 1 kan worden gebruikt als field guide (Volume 1 bevat alleen beschrijvingen en is significant zwaarder). Erg handig zijn de verspreidingsgebieden bij de tekeningen. Ik heb met dit boek gewerkt in Suriname, dit is erg goed bevallen!
