Helm Field Guides Birds of Venezuela

by David Ascanio, Gustavo A Rodriguez

Helm Field Guides Birds of Venezuela
£40.00 Add to basket


Venezuela is blessed with one of the largest avifaunas in the world. More than 1,400 species have been recorded in the country, thanks to a great diversity of habitats ranging from the High Andes to lowland Amazonian rainforest, and just about everything in between. Its strategic position in the north of South America also ensures that it receives many non-breeding migrants, both from the north and from the south. Add to this a good number of endemics, and you have all the ingredients for a top birding destination.

This brand new field guide has been written to fulfil the needs of both visiting and resident birders by providing a single-volume, portable field guide that covers every species recorded in the country. It has been written specifically to make it easier to identify birds in a country where the bewildering number of species can be a real challenge. The concise text concentrates on the key information needed to identify a species (or subspecies), and the distinctions from confusing or similar species. Up to date distribution maps are provided for every species. The illustrations are placed opposite the text for easy reference and cover all major plumage variations, whether they are seasonal, sexual, age-related or racial. Birds of Venezuela has been designed to be both portable in the field and user-friendly. It is the only guide you will need to identify birds in Venezuela and is a major new addition to the Helm Field Guides series. 248 plates with colour illustrations; colour photos, colour illustrations, colour distribution maps
