Birds of Argentina and the South-west Atlantic (Princeton Field Guides)
Argentina is one of South America’s premier birding destinations, encompassing a range of habitats―from rainforests and pampas grasslands to the wetlands of the Iberá and the 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 distribution maps, and close to 200 stunning color plates illustrating every species and many distinct plumages and subspecies. This essential book will satisfy researchers, birders, and conservationists alike.
