Cuba is now one of the most popular birding destinations in the world. Its rich avifauna includes 25 endemic species, and the island is also home to a range of regional scarcities and an important stopping point for migrants as they cross the Caribbean.
Containing hundreds of stunning photographs by Yves-Jacques Rey-Millet, Birds of Cuba, the latest addition to the Helm Photographic Guides Series, provides full photographic coverage of every species on the Cuban list. Concise text for each species includes identification, similar species, voice, habitats and behaviour, status and distribution, along with a map.
Birds of Cuba is an essential companion for any birder or naturalist visiting this beautiful and bird-rich island.
"[...] Readers travelling across the Caribbean may find Birds of the West Indies a better buy, but those concentrating on Cuba alone should seriously consider this alternative."
