2013 printing. Photographic field guide covering 180 species from the Virgin Islands to Grenada; includes a checklist. Copies slightly imperfect.
Due to their position and wide range of natural habitat, up to three hundred species of birds have been recorded in the islands of the Eastern Caribbean. This includes the migrating birds from North America and the Arctic which come to rest in the islands during Spring and Autumn. This book provices a review of all the commoner species to be found in the islands. For each species the key features are identified, followed by notes on status, distribution, habitat, breeding biology, diet and behavior. Photographs of many species are illustrated in color for the first time.
The guide provides helpful hints on bird-watching and bird photography. There is a useful bibliography, list of best bird-watching sites and an island-by-island check-list of species recently observed.
