About this book

Birds, Beasts and Bureaucrats is a rollicking adventure to remote islets, hidden caves, and tropical forests tracing a young naturalist's steps to study and conserve the extraordinary wildlife of Puerto Rico, an island paradise in the heart of the Caribbean. Exotic birds, fish-eating bats, un-described frogs, and even the "strong-voiced cave-mouth" an extraordinary nocturnal specter, are among the menagerie of exotic wildlife encountered as we accompany the author to the most remote corners of the island in an effort to save these and other unique critters for posterity.

By the author of the widely acclaimed "Guide to the Birds of the West Indies" and "Guide to the Birds of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands".
