Voices of Andean Birds - Volume 1

Voices of Andean Birds - Volume 1

The lowermost slopes of the Andes mountains, where the Amazonian and Andean avifaunas overlap, are one of the richest locations for biodiversity in the world. Although birds are a conspicuous element in these forests, they are more easily heard here than seen. Features the vocalizations of 99 bird species found in the geographic area from southern Peru south into northern Bolivia, including species such as Lanceolated Monklet, Bolivian Recurvebill, and Carmiol's Tanager. It will also prove useful in areas farther north, since the distributions of many of these species extends beyond this region. 24 page booklet insert. 64 min.
