This is the first identification guide to all birds known to occur in the West Indies, a total of 563 species (including five species now widely considered extinct but with the potential, perhaps, for 're-discovery'). As with other guides in the series detailed introductory sections are followed by the plates and then the species texts. Each text covers all aspects of identification and includes the full range of local names for the bird. Accompanying each species account is a distribution map showing the bird's range within the West Indies. Each species is illustrated in the plates, and many island 'forms', where relevant, are also depicted. There is also a 'locality checklist' at the end of the book, providing an at-a-glance, island-by-island guide to the distribution and status of all species.
