A few comments on your posting please.....
By way of background, I have been to Brasil 53 times for work over the last 27 
years, ie I have birded in Brasil over a relatively long period - great birds.  
In the "early days" there were no "real" Brasil fieldguides, then along came 
Deodato Sousa with "All the birds of Brasil - an identification guide" - a step 
forward which improved significantly over the three editions but unfortunately 
the illustration were poor in all three. The latest is the Ber van Perlo 
Brazilian field guide which, in my opinion, is a major step forward.
I think we have been spoilt with such good fieldguides for Australia, USA, 
Europe, etc.
