Birds of Peru

These maps were created at The Field Museum during the preparation of Birds of Peru.

Map symbols: solid circles = specimen records; open circles = sight records (including records documented with sound recordings or photographs); triangles = historical records (not rigidly defined, but implies a local extinction or a site from which there have not been subsequent records for at least 50 years). Dotted line = 1000 m contour.


Please cites these maps as:

Schulenberg, T. S., D. F. Stotz, and L. Rico. 2006. Distribution maps of the birds of Peru, version 1.0.
