About this book

Covers all 564 species known to occur in the West Indies and uses the plates from the acclaimed "Birds of the West Indies" by the same authors. It has concise text on facing pages covering all aspects of field identification and is lightweight and easy to use.

...The species accounts are generally very good, the book is well illustrated and there is no other with the same scope. I thoroughly recommend it.
