Descripción del producto
Fascinating reading... [This] finally eclipses ... the old field guide ... that in its various forms held sway for more than fifty years... The illustrations ... are exceptionally beautiful... Indispensable. -- Stephen Mills, Times Literary Supplement The current consensus is that the finest field guide to the exotic archipelagos of the Caribbean is Birds of the West Indies by Herbert Raffaele. Now that I've visited the region a few times, I can definitely agree! ... The abundant illustrations are crisp, colorful, and mostly accurate while the text is succinct yet informative. -- Mike Bergin, 10,000 Birds While paging through the new West Indian field guide ... I lost track of several hours, completely captivated by the images before me... [It includes] color plates of surpassing accuracy and ... the text ... is accurate and highly readable. -- Tropical Audubon Bulletin

Fully illustrated, easy to use, and completely up-to-date, "Birds of the West Indies" is the only field guide that covers all of the bird species known to occur in the region - including migrants and infrequently occurring forms. Each species is represented by a full description that includes identification field marks, status and range, habitat, and voice. A map showing the bird's distribution accompanies many species accounts, and plumages of all species are depicted in ninety-three beautifully rendered color plates. Bird lovers, vacationing tourists, local residents, and "armchair travelers" will all want to own this definitive field guide to the birds of the West Indies. It includes all the species recorded in the region, features ninety-three color plates with concise text on facing pages for quick reference and easy identification, and also contains species accounts which cover identification, voice, status and habitat, and range, and color distribution maps.Ver Descripción del producto

Illustrations variable in quality. Many are quite good, but some of the continental species are weak,
Overall a valuable book,the one you'll want to have if you go birding in the West Indies..
It appears that more effort was made on the birds of the northern Caribbean islands than the southern islands, but all in all, this book is a good field guide and I am glad that I had taken it with me.
Marshall Faintich, author of "A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Wintergreen"
