This is the interactive mobile field guide version of Birds of Peru by Schulenberg, Stotz, Lane, O'Neill & Parker. Like the paper edition, it is the most complete and authoritative field guide to this diverse neotropical landscape, featuring every one of Peru's 1,817 bird species. Every distinct plumage is covered in superb, high-quality color illustrations. This mobile version includes all of the same excellent content of the print edition plus audio for 1,510 species and "Smart Search" by color, size and habitat. It has been updated to reflect the current eBird/Clements taxonomy.

This easy-to-use application comes equipped with concise species descriptions, range maps, audio of bird calls, and detailed illustrations.
