  • An outstanding guide to the endemic birds of Cuba
    By Wilf 11 Apr 2016 Written for Paperback
    The book is a good pocket-sized illustrated guide to the endemic birds of Cuba and nearby islands. The paintings, which make up most of the illustrations, are of an outstanding quality from this brilliant Cuban Illustrator and are complimented by photos of the birds in their natural habitat. Most species are illustrated by 3 or 4 pictures showing the birds in different postures, which can be very helpful when seeing a species for the first time.

    This book would be an essential guide for any birdwatcher going to Cuba for the first time hoping to see has many endemic bird species as possible in a short period of time. It gives tips on bird watching in Cuba, Cuban conservation laws, the status of each species, the habitat in which species may be found and maps showing the distribution of species. There are some icons that can be quickly learned to help the visitor learn more about each species from abundance to food preferences. The first chapter getting to know Cuba makes essential reading telling the observer what to look for and what plants to avoid. I look forward to using this guide on my next visit to Cuba.
