Go West for Parrots! by Rosemary Low
For those interested in tropical birds and other wildlife, South America is a paradise. From its cities to the shrinking wild and unspoilt forests, mountains, lakes and paramo regions, it is teeming with fascinating creatures. Rosemary Low's journeys to the neotropics, starting in 1975 and spanning 33 years, are described in this absorbing book. The emphasis is firmly on the birds and other fauna, with a sprinkling of culture and adventures along the way. Illustrated with B&W photos.
