Cotingas and Manakins
By Kirwan, Guy and Green, Graeme
Pp. 624; 34 full page color plates after paintings by Eustace Barnes, over 400 color photographs some color photographs from photos by Hadoram Barnes. Publisher’s original black cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, color pictorial dust jacket, lg 8vo. The 130 species of Cotingas and Manakins are found exclusively in the New World Tropics. This endemic group of species are considered the jewels of the Neotropics. Few other families of birds have such widespread appeal. They are much sought-after by birders for their colorful displays, unusual plumages and, in some cases, great rarity. For scientists, their natural history and behavior provide fascinating case studies that yield important data in the quest to understand evolutionary biology (from the jacket flap). This is the definitive work on Cotingas and Manakins.
