South America is home to about one-third of the world's bird species and twice as many endemic families of birds as any other continent. "Birds of Southern South America and Antarctica" illustrates and describes all the known species--more than 1,000 of them--in a vast swath of this underexplored birder's paradise, from Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, southern Brazil, and Uruguay to parts of Antarctica.
