The ultimate illustrated field guide to the birds of Argentina. Illustrated by Aldo A. Chiappe, Jorge Rodriguez Mata, Richard Johnson Alan Harris.
Argentina is one of South America's premier birding destinations, encompassing a wide range of habitats - from lush rainforests and vast pampas grasslands to the extensive wetlands of the Pantanal and the windswept wilderness of Tierra del Fuego. Surprisingly, despite the strong interest in Argentina's rich avian population, the country has until now lacked a credible, modern field guide to its birds. Authoritative and up-to-date, Birds of Argentina and the South-west Atlantic provides detailed species accounts, a plethora of maps, and more than 170 stunning color plates illustrating every species and subspecies, and all major plumages for males, females, and many juveniles. This essential book will satisfy all birders, from newcomers to the most serious enthusiasts.
