About this book

The first dedicated field guide to Honduras, featuring 1,000 illustrations on 73 color plates. Guide to the Birds of Honduras also illustrates the majority of the migratory species. Along with the standard species accounts Guide to the Birds of Honduras has a lengthy chapter on 'Where to Find Birds in Honduras'. There are numerous tables toward the end of the book, one of which has an extensive list of botanical names for nectar sources that hummingbirds utilize and each species of hummingbird observed for each flower. A unique feature is a large pull-out map, approx. 16 × 25 inches, fitted in a pocket in the backcover. One side illustrates a basic layout of ecosystems, while other side is labeled 'Important Bird Sites in Honduras' and features over 200 points of interest throughout the country. These GPS-coded marker numbers are embedded in the text throughout most of the book and are all laid out in a separate table. This layout means that all the numbers can be easily cross-referenced.

Guide to the Birds of Honduras covers over 98% of the birds of the surrounding countries of Guatemala, El Salvador, Belize and Nicaragua.

Media reviews

"In the spirit of Wallace and Bates, Robert has meticulously cataloged the rich abundance of this nation's birds [...] it was his heartfelt dedication to understanding the full spectrum of the Honduran avifauna that drew our company back time and time again."
– Peg Abott - Owner Naturalist Journeys and CEO, Caligo Ventures

"Fom the fascinating pine savannas of the Mosquitia, dry Pacific woodland, to mist-shrouded cloud forests, there are birds everywhere, many of them more easily seen in this friendly country than anywhere else"
– Dr. Robert S. Ridgely - President, Rainforest Trust

"'Robert's knowledge of Honduran birds in the field is extraordinary [...] and his concern for the conservation of the birdlife and natural habitats of his adopted country are an inspiration to many"
– Mark Beaman - Birdquest
