The latest addition in the series is Cotingas and Manakins, written by long-time Neotropical birders Guy Kirwan and Graeme Green. The book covers just over 130 species; recent genetic work has shown that many species formerly shoved into the cotinga or manakin ‘bin’ are in fact unrelated, and so subsequently several species have been shuttled off to other families. Such moves include the schiffornises and purpletufts to Tityridae and a pending shift of the enigmatic Kinglet Calyptura to the Tyrannidae; however, this book retains these species.

This volume by Guy Kirwan and Graeme Green (no relation) is a thorough and nearly comprehensive guide to the largest groups of South American bird species, including all of the usual key features. The book covers over 130 species in detail, with 34 color plates (drawings) by Eustace Barnes, and about 400 color photographs and numerous maps. This book looks in detail at two families of South American birds, the cotingas and manakins, perhaps the most colourful of all neotropical bird groups, and widely regarded as the South American equivalent of New Guinea's Birds of Paradise.
