Finally, after a long process that took more than fifteen years and countless hours of research, field work, processing of data, writing and drawing, our new field guide to the birds of Chile, 'Aves de Chile, Sus Islas Oceánicas y Península Antártica', is finally out, and we couldn’t be more proud to present it to the public, especially on the year of our 20th anniversary.
This book is a living testimony to the decades of hard field work of the authors and a couple of generations of Chilean ornithologists, many of whom have never been properly acknowledged, and represents a major achievement and contribution to the Ornithology and the state of the knowledge of the Birds of Chile and South America.
It will be the most complete field guide to the birds of the country up to this date, incorporating recent records and observations, the newest taxonomic guidelines and arrangement, updated distribution maps and beautiful and descriptive plates, all in a field-friendly format that we hope will be a good birdwatching companion as well as a useful reference book at home.
A Guide to the Birds of Chile,Oceanic Islands and Antarctic Peninsula - English version available in 2017.
Our Field Guide will start to be distributed by late September 2016 and available at Chile's major bookstores during early October 2016.
