Recommendations for July, 2001
Birds of Ecuador
Released July 9th
Robert Ridgely has written a fantastic new book on the 1,600 birds of Ecuador. Volume 1 (848 pages) includes distribution, status and taxonomy information. Volume 2 (740 pages) is the Field Guide with 96 plates illustrated by Paul Greenfield. They are both available as a boxed set. I just returned from the VENT Ecuador Celebration with Bob and Paul and was able to spend two weeks in the field using these books. They are amazing books - highly recommended!
