A guide to the Bird Songs of the Colombian Andes is the most comprehensive published collection to date of the vocalizations of Colombian birds, and is an excellent reference tool for education, monitoring, research, and conservation.

The biodiversity of Colombia is extraordinary. With an area of only 1.14 million km, less than 1 percent of the world’s land surface — it hosts around 20 percent of the world’s bird species. The diversity is greatest in the Andes, which cover a fourth of the country. The three cordilleras, or ranges, of the Colombian Andes run north-south through the country and are divided by deep valleys gouged out by the Magdalena and Cauca rivers. Each cordillera, with its distinct geological history, contributed to the immense biogeographical, ecological, and climatic complexity of the region. As a consequence, divergent populations of birds can be found on each cordillera, slope, or serrania of the Colombian Andes.

To identify birds in the field, it is essential to know their vocalizations – in dense forests, it is often easier to hear birds than to see them. This audio guide is the most comprehensive published collection to date of the vocalizations of Colombian birds. Ornithologists, naturalists, bird watchers, students, educators, and others may find this guide useful in the study and appreciation of region’s birds.
