J.G. Keulemans litho. in Salvin's Biologia Centrali-Americanum

I recently happened upon an amazing new digital resource including some fabulous bird plates from Salvin's 'Biologia Centrali-Americanum', published in the late 1800's and early 1900's in 52 volumes. Here is one of my favorite plates depicting the Pink-headed Wabler and Fan-tailed Warbler, two fascinating species I saw on my recent trip to Chiapas.
Check out the 'Biologia Centrali-Americanum' , a project digitized and hosted in conjunction with the Smihsonian Institute. Click on 'AVES, Vol 1-4', and on the next page click 'View all plates sequentially', to view the plates.
