9780007277186: Birds of the West Indies (Collins Field Guide)

From Grand Bahama Island in the north to Grenada in the south, this is an identification guide to the birds of a popular tourist destination renowned for the variety and diversity of its birdlife.

The West Indies include the Bahama Islands, the Greater Antilles (Cuba, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico), and the Lesser Antilles (Anguilla, Nevis and St Kitts, Martinique, St Lucia, Barbados, Grenadines, St Vincent). It is a tropical avifaunal region which includes such species as the tiny bee hummingbird, parrots, honey-creepers and todies.

Every species found in the area is illustrated in every plumage in which they can be seen in the wild. The accompanying text concentrates on the specific characteristics and appearance of each species that allow identification in the field, including voice and distribution maps.
