About this book

The Dominican Republic and Haiti share the island of Hispaniola, the second largest in the Caribbean after Cuba, and the home of several endemic species, including the Palm Chat. In this book all 302 species known to have occurred on the island are described and illustrated, including 31 endemics. Information on the biology and ecology of the birds is also provided. The authors are acknowledged authorities on West Indian birds.

"The illustrations are good and the concise text is free of waffle This new guide provides the travelling birder with all they need for a visit to this superb location and even those with a casual eye on the local wildlife will find it indispensable when trying to put a name to that hummingbird in the hotel garden."
- The Visitor (January 2007)

"I liked the book and if I ever go there for a trip I will certainly invest in it [...] A manageable field guide at a reasonable price."
- Scottish Bird News (June 2007)

"Will undoubtedly prove an invaluable field guide for residents and visitors [an] excellent guide that anyone interested in the birds of Hispaniola should have."
- IBIS (2007)
