Review: I purchased this book for my forthcoming tour of Paraguay, which does not have its own field guide (yet). The range of the book overlaps with southern Brazil to which I already have the standard field guides. The plates are perfectly usable and the text is in informative and concise. Only time will tell whether this book was a worthwhile purchase, but early signs are promising.
