This is the only national bird finding guide for Venezuela and has long been carried by visiting birders along with handful of supplementary trip reports. The 5th edition is about twice the size of its predecessor and much better presented thanks to Lynx Edicions. The coverage has expanded both in detail and scope. The Amazonas & Bolivar sections now run to 40 pages, for example, and the fabulous Escalera Road receives kilometre by kilometre treatment. Maps are included for the first time and the written site descriptions are much improved. The usual sections on travel in Venezuela, planning an itinerary and finding a guide are still there and somewhat improved too. This book is pretty much mandatory for planning a birding trip to Venezuela.
