About this book

World famous bird illustrator Hermann Heinzel teamed up with a young photographer to capture the birds and other wildlife of these islands. The first section of the book is a tour around each of the islands describing in words, illustrations and photographs the habitats and wildlife to be found, highlighting some of the strange breeding strategies of the archipelago's birds with breathtaking illustrations. The second half of the book is a detailed field guide with sketches and more finished paintings, photographs and maps.

"[...] Even though this volume does not live up to its title of being the complete guide to the birds of the Galápagos (a true field guide is still needed), it is still recommended. It is almost essential to anyone fortunate enough to travel to these islands. And for the rest of us it is a fascinating read and a great introduction to the unique creatures found there and nowhere else on our planet."
