Anatomically correct illustrations and detailed descriptions about each bird's prominent physical attributes and natural habitat makes it easy to identify birds in your backyard, favorite parks, and wildlife areas.

      And Texas is a particularly birdy state. Some birds, due to their cryptic or furtive nature, present great challenges to the birder. Frequently you need to sort many separate and incomplete clues to come up with the proper identification. The birder doesn’t always get a good long look at the bird. The Birds of South America, projected to be a four-volume work, thus fills a critical void. Starting from a museum approach, the authors have examined specimens of each subspecies, comparing them visually and trying to discern the patterns in their plumage variation, both intra- and inter-specifically.
