A much-needed guide to the avifauna of this Atlantic island, providing comprehensive data on the history and current status of the island's birds. Starting with an introduction to the habitats, seasons and migration patterns, it goes on to provide details of the main birdwatching sites. Descriptions of the island's resident species are followed by the core of the book, the annotated species accounts, which give status, origin, habits, habitats, and seasonal abundance and distribution, for the 344 species recorded. Over 220 of the species are illustrated on the colour plates and halftones.
Although this guide is not intended as a full identification field guide, and should be used in conjunction with a good North American field guide, it is an invaluable handbook for anyone intending visiting the island.
