The only field guide to illustrate and describe every non-passerine species of bird in South America.

All plumages for each species are illustrated, including males, females and juveniles. Princeton Illustrated Checklists.

This small field guide crams all South America's non-passerines into .

But how well does it do this, asks Simon Papps. It is laid out in a very similar style to the Collins Illustrated Checklist: Birds of Southern South America and Antarctica. Mata’s plates have much greater clarity and accuracy than those in the earlier guide.

Here in an easy-to-use format is the first guide to the nearly 1,300 species of non-passerine South American birds. It complements Robert Ridgly and Guy Tudor's large reference volumes on the passerines (1,800 species), which will soon be available in a single-volume field guide format.

The text concentrates on the key identification features of each species and follows the layout of other books in this series.

This Princeton Illustrated Checklist covers only "Non Passerines: Rheas to Woodpeckers". In their introduction the authors are rightfully proud to have compiled illustrations, range maps and useful information for almost 1,300 non-passerines in such a compact, field-worthy "pocket-sized volume", but they concede that "in the other pocket one will have to carry a regional, country, or local guidebook as well to complete the information regarding the other 1,800 or so species". What they fail to note is that almost any such guide would include coverage of the non-passerines, as well.

If you plan to travel to more than one South American country or if you're traveling to a country or region not adequately covered by a contemporary field guide, you should certainly pack this volume. If your travels are limited to northern South America, the field guide volume of the two-volume set by Restall, Rodner & Lentino would be a reference for the passerines (and the non-passerines). If your travels take you to southern South America, an illustrated Princeton checklist (which I have not seen) covers all species found in that region, including of course the passerines.

Back to the guide under discussion: the plates are for the most part well-organized and the artwork attractive and presumably accurate (based on a random sampling of species with which I am familiar). The facing-page species accounts concisely offer ID clues and habitat preferences (often quite informative), along with continent-wide range maps. I have not yet visited South America, but I'm confident that during my visits there this guide will be of considerable value.

But of course I'll bring at least one guide for the other pocket! Until someone publishes a compact guide to the passerines of South America (a formidable task indeed), this illustrated (and well-annotated) checklist will be a volume in search of a companion.

This is a great and thorough guide to all the non-passerines in South America, a continent with astonishing avian diversity. I love this book, as I have loved every book I get from Princeton. The illustrations are incredible and each page has great information!

I recently traveled to Brazil for a conference and some birding-oriented travel, and waffled between purchasing this book (accompanied by Ridgely and Tudor's Songbirds of South America) or the single-volume Birds of Brazil by Ber van Perlo. At the advice of a few birder friends who had recently spent time in Brazil, I chose this book - and I am so glad that I did! Most other people I birded with had van Perlo's book, so I was able to compare the plates side-by-side. These two books were superior, often by orders of magnitude, in every single case - better, more accurate drawings; more accurate color rendition; more updated and precise range information; and more in-depth natural-history descriptions.

My one complaint - beyond the size (which is unavoidable, given the expansive material covered) - is that some of the poses were, well, cheesy. Such as hawks and eagles depicted in aggressive screeching poses, as you might see in a Bald Eagle image on a cheap set of matching patriotic plates sold from the back of Reader's Digest. But don't let this dissuade you - this is the book to buy, no doubt about it!

Field-worthy quick reference books with adequate distribution maps for South America. Lightest, most comprehensive list I've found.

This book is a perfect combination of completeness and beatiful art work. The plates are great, accurate and useful in field, Its a good idea put some hummingbirds in flight because the mayority of cases it is the way that we see in field, so you learn to identified this complex family in this postures. The introductory chapters say the essentials and the review of birds families its a good point to start. Maybe I would have liked that the book had a more recent taxonomic treatments for the families, but this is a minor problem if you are familiarized with the systematics of south-american birds ( for more details or doubts simply look the american ornithologist union south american cheklist SACC). Additionaly the maps of geographical ranges are small but if you know the fundamentals of the continent topography you dont have problems. In sinthesis its a great book and very portable in field if you considerer your size...

Overall very decent quality!

Print a little small, hard to look things up in the index.
I had only found a few problems with the text and maps, and I used this in conjuncture with a friends local guide to birds - the illustrations are amazing and accurate. I did find that a few other poses would have been helpful, but then it wouldn't be a field guide, would it? Great size and weight, the book really held up to 4 months of abuse. I'm considering getting the guides to passerines as well.
