Las Aves Urbanas

Las Aves Urbanas was published in 1985 by the now defunct "Editorial Penthalon". I wrote the text of the book when I was 16 years old, and the drawings are all mostly by Iñaki Díez Cortaberría (with a few by myself). Citation details are:

        author = {Ramón Díaz Uriarte and Iñaki Díez Cortaberría},
        title = {Las Aves Urbanas},
        publisher = {Penthalon Ediciones},
        year = {1985},
        address = {Madrid},
        ISBN = {84-86411-03-3},
        pages = {136},

The book has been out of print for several years now, and the publisher disappeared in 2001 or 2002. More comprehensive and updated books about birds, and fauna in general, of cities are currently available, but there were few when we wrote this one. It is my intention to make the book available under a Creative Commons license, but to do so I need to get the permission from my coauthor, whom I have not been able to locate (Iñaki, ¿estás ahí?). Here are, thus, only a few pages.

Please note that this work is copyrighted (by Iñaki and myself, the authors and copyright holders) and, contrary to most of the rest of the material here, it is not (yet?) under a Creative Commons license.
