Product Description

Review


Winner of the 2003 Best Bird Book - West Indies, Worldtwitch


"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

By Bryan Arroyo on April 11 2004
Format: Paperback
Birds of the West Indies is a much needed and well researched update of the classic book "Birds of the West Indies" by James Bond. This update provides layman and serious birders and researchers with critically important updates on species distribution and habitat areas. A must read for the serious birders and curious readers interested in understanding the birds of the West Inidan Archipelago.

After a lot of research I decided on this guide and I could not be more pleased! Beautiful illustrations, quality printing and although the text is somewhat lacking at times, compromises had to be made to keep the guide portable enough that's it will be easy to take along. I think this will be a great identification guide for my travels to Cuba and Jamaica.

Though the previous A Guide To The Birds of The West Indies is unparalleled in its depth, this handy guide is what we were waiting for. It saves us the pains of lugging its bigger predecesor into swamps, jungles and fields, without sacrificing key information and wonderful drawings.

I bought this book for a trip to Cuba and found it quite helpful though not complete There were several birds when I was on a birding expedition that I couldn't find in my book but were in a copy of The Birds of Cuba. Other than that, the artwork is quite good and it was easy to use for quick identification in the field. I would definitely recommend this field guide.
