Helm Field Guide Series: Birds of South America-Passerines. Large paperback format covering almost 2000 species.
With this publication Robert Ridgely and Guy Tudor established themselves as leading authorities on the birds of South America.
Reviewers hailed this and their other publication The Oscine Passerines (1989) as essential reference work for professional ornithologists and avid birders alike, and they remain the only volume(s) that provide full coverage of the identification and distribution of all the continent's passerines. Recognising the need for a more compact guide that can be taken into the field, the authors have extracted essential information from the two volumes to create a comprehensive field guide.
