About this book

The Canary Islands is a popular destination for birders and travellers with an interest in wildlife and nature, and one of the best places in the world to see several scarce species such as the Houbara Bustard. They also hold a number of endemic birds that occur nowhere else, such as the emblematic Blue Chaffinch.

This beautifully illustrated guide covers all the birds found in the islands, providing concise descriptions for easy identification, though no distribution maps, and plates for easy identification of all species. It's the perfect guide for any visitor to these sun-kissed islands.

Media reviews

"[...] a useful guide for anyone visiting the Canary Islands for the first time, and hopefully providing some encouragement to visit the lesser known islands of El Hierro and La Palma."
– Stephen McAvoy, BTO book reviews
