Dear Birders

Following a posting on this chat line for advice on what field guides/info would be best for a 3 week trip to Tierra del Fuego and Antarctica, I bought via Amazon

Complete Guide to Antarctic Wildlife - Hadoram Shirihai, illustrated by Brett Jarrett. 2002. Beautiful but heavy hardcover book with excellent info on the whole of Antarctica - really useful for Falklands and S Georgia - sadly too big/heavy to take but well worth it for the detail.

Antarctica - a Guide to the Wildlife - Tony Soper illustrated by Davila Scott, amended 2003 - a useful slender and light field guide for the most likely to be seen birds and mammals.

Birds of Southern S America and Antarctica - de la Pena and Rumboll 1998 - good sized field guide with the basic info for all birds in Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, S Brazil and S Bolivia, plus Antarctica. - to give me what I need for the 3 stop overs I have - Ushuaia, Puerto Arenas and Puerto Montt. These from Amazon came to US$66.01 plus US$27.96 postage - Australian $120.14.

And then with Rough Guide to Chile on hand, should be plain sailing!!
