      Birds of Central America is the first comprehensive field guide to the avifauna of the entire region, including Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama.

With exciting discoveries of species that are new to science still occurring with surprising regularity Peru also offers the thrill of seeing birds that few people have ever seen before.
