About this book

With a rich avifauna of more than 300 species, the three islands that make up the Cayman Islands – Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac – form an increasingly popular birding destination. Although the islands' sole endemic species, Cayman Islands Thrush, was extinct by the 1940s, the islands have a healthy crop of regional scarcities and are an important migrant stopping point as they cross the Caribbean.

Containing hundreds of stunning photographs by Yves-Jacques Rey-Millet, A Photographic Guide to the Birds of the Cayman Islands, the latest addition to Helm's Photographic Guides series, provides full photographic coverage of every species on the Cayman Islands list. Concise text for each species includes identification, similar species, voice, habitats and behaviour, status and distribution. A Photographic Guide to the Birds of the Cayman Islands is an essential companion for anyone visiting these beautiful islands.

Media reviews

"[...] this new work provides photographs and details of 193 species. These are mostly residents and regular visitors, although a few rare migrants are also included. A further 47 species are mentioned briefly as they are rare vagrants for which there are few records. A concise text of around 150 words is given for each species and covers identification, voice, habitats, confusion species, status and distribution. In most cases, two good quality photographs are given for each species, but there are often more. There is a very useful section on places to visit, giving brief details together with maps of each island and an explanation of habitats. This is a useful guide and a huge improvement on the previous book."
