What books do I buy?

i> in Peru. This website is visited annually by more than 100,000 people. AvesdeLima ranks among the 20 most visited bird sites in the world.

Biology and others
Xantófilas are also found naturally in many plants, are pigmented compounds and also have photosynthetic action. CAM (acid metabolism of Crassulaceae) is a type of metabolism that is discovered in the family of Crassulaceae.

Peru is the second most diverse bird country in the world: we have more than 1800 species that represent 20% of the total species of birds in the world. Throughout the department of Lima including high seas you can see more than 300 species.

The parks of Lima have about 25 species and a beginner will have fun for several weekends to see and identify them all. Bird watching can be done in a family, as a couple or only. We started this hobby with family and in 2003 I started this website to facilitate access to information of birds that live in Lima. With the installation of signs in some parks and the publication of the book "100 Aves de Lima y Alrededores", information on birds for Lima is increased.

The species on the website are grouped by habitats such as parks, marshes, agricultural valleys, beaches and high seas. The Reference section has useful information (complete lists by zones, links).

I hope that the material included in AvesdeLima will help many people in Lima to start birdwatching.
