Birds of Chile
"Rarely does a field guide of this caliber debut as its country's first. "Birds of Chile" offers not just perfect field-portability, beautiful and accurate artwork with facing text, and clarity and conciseness throughout: it presents genuinely new scholarship on the field identification of several cryptic and difficult groups, as well as on the modern geographic distribution of Chile's birds. Those who bird Chile will find the combined brilliance of Jaramillo, Burke, and Beadle indispensable in the field and by the fireside."--Ned Brinkley, Editor, "North American Birds"
Alvaro Jaramillo was born in Santiago, Chile, and raised in Toronto, Canada. He is currently a wildlife biologist for the Coyote Creek Riparian Station in San Jose, California. He also leads birding tours in North and South America, and is the author of several bird books, including
New World Blackbirds (Princeton). That book was illustrated by
Peter Burke, who has traveled throughout South America and Mexico as a professional bird artist.
David Beadle has illustrated several bird and nature books including
A Guide to the Identification and Natural History of Sparrows of the United States and Canada (Princeton).
