Some 14 months after the publication of the first volume (Non-Passerines), I am pleased to announce that the third and final volume of All the World’s Birds 2019 : A Companion Guide – SOUTH AMERICA/MIDDLE AMERICA has been published as a Kindle eBook.

This means birders now have one-click access to up to date information for all of the region’s 4018 bird species from their Kindle reading device – whether that be a Kindle, a tablet or a smart phone.



AND … during the 2019 Easter Holiday (April 19 to 23) you can purchase ALL THREE of these volumes for less than $US 2 (before tax), or less than £UK 2 – click here for more details.



The SOUTH AMERICA/MIDDLE AMERICA World Region covers the landmass between the Mexico/USA border and Tierra del Fuego. It includes the Galápagos Islands and Falkland Islands (Malvinas), Aruba, Curaçao, Bonaire and Trinidad, as well as smaller islands within a short distance from the mainland coastline.

The bird species included are landbirds that are resident or otherwise regularly present within the region and in their native state. A separate section within each of the three volumes covers Introductions, plus species that have not been recorded for a while, or for which there is not enough information to be sure of their status within the region. Seabirds that breed within the SOUTH AMERICA/MIDDLE AMERICA region are also included within Volume 1.


Use these three eBooks to explore and to improve your knowledge of SOUTH AMERICA/MIDDLE AMERICA birds from the comfort of your home. Take your reading device with you when you go away on birding trips, and connect it to the internet for quick access to information about each species whenever you need it.


The three volumes now available from Amazon are as follows:

Some details …


Each of the ATWB 2019 Companion Guides has a number of important features, including:

– A complete taxonomic listing of bird species

– An indication of where each bird family and species can be found in its native state

– Spotlighted species that have a restricted regional or worldwide range


However, perhaps the key feature of all eBooks in the Companion Guide series is the way you can quickly and simply access relevant, up to date online information about every featured bird species. If your reading device is connected to the internet, a single click will take you to a search results page for a species, from where you can continue to search for additional information to whatever level of detail you desire.


The ‘All the World’s Birds’ series of Companion Guides derives its taxonomy, English names and scientific names from The IOC World Bird List, an open access resource maintained by the International Ornithological Congress (IOC). The IOC bird list is hosted on a dedicated World Bird Names website, which provides access to the list in various different formats. The version of the IOC bird list used in the ‘All the World’s Birds 2019’ series of Companion Guides is Version 8.2, published June 27 2018.
