    About this book. Please note that this book was published in Europe as the now out-of-print Collins Illustrated Checklist: Birds of Southern South America and Antarctica. South America, though home to about one-third of the world's bird species and twice as many endemic families of birds as any other continent, has the world's sparsest population of birdwatchers.
