Well I saw on www.avesdechile.cl that a new Chilean Bird Book has come out not long ago. It looks very good maybe just as good as the Alvaro Jaramillo Birds of Chile guide.
It has about 30 more vagrant birds or birds at least spotted in chile, has about 600 houndred pages and the ilustrations look pretty good.
But I still would like know if someone has it or nows about it so I can decide if I'll buy it.
I know that probably most of you havent even heard of this new book because it came out such a short time ago. But if somebody HAS I would like to know what you thought of it.

I bought this book and I can tell you the following:

PRO:
- 30 more vagrants than in Jaramillo
- More info about every bird including the location where the vagrants where seen.
- The maps shows location of vagrant and also the normal range of the bird in South America.

AGAINST:
- 600 pages makes is 3 to 4 times heavier.
- Illustrations at Jaramillo's field guide are more detailed.
