Covers all 564 species known to occur in the West Indies and uses the plates from the acclaimed Birds of the West Indies by the same authors. It has concise text on facing pages covering all aspects of field identification and is lightweight and easy to use. More information on updates to the second edition will follow soon.
...The species accounts are generally very good, the book is well illustrated and there is no other with the same scope. I thoroughly recommend it.
