This is the first ever guide to the birds of San Rafael National Park, a park so rich in birdlife that it counts on a list of species that is comparable to some small countries and greater than many large islands. Illustrated throughout with full colour photographs, this ambitious work will form part of a series of photographic guides dealing with the fauna and flora of the reserve with the sole aim of making people aware of the immense biodiversity that San Rafael holds and the serious threats that face it. Flick through the pages and enjoy the extraordinary variety of the bird life that inhabits the park, then reflect a moment on how the world would be a much poorer place if the reserve, and its birds, were to be lost forever.
