Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Took this book on my recent trip to the Dominican Republic. It has great pics and information and is easy to use, and lightweight to carry in the field.

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Much better than Bond! May 23 2006
By J. C. M. Bannerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just came back from St. Vincent where I used a copy of James Bond's "Birds of the Caribbean". It was acceptable, but it didn't have many colour plates or pictures of birds in flight.

This book is all colour illustrations and has pictures of birds in flight. The information is also up to date.

Many more useful tools for bird identification than in Bond! For example, this has habitat and maps of range.

Excellent Field Guide April 7 2006
By Elizabeth A. Salt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent field guide with great pictures of birds, making identification easier. The descriptions about the different bird species inhabiting the West Indies are also very good. The guide seems to give fuller coverage to birds in the northern Caribbean islands, such as Cuba, Hispaniola, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico, and somewhat less coverage to birds in the central and southern regions of the West Indian island chain, but it was still very helpful to me with bird identification on a recent trip to the island of Montserrat (about 300 miles southeast of Puerto Rico). Recommended for birders vacationing in the West Indies.

missing the behavioral tips Feb. 15 2007
By J. R. Stone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this guide in Februrary 2007 on St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. Color illustrations were very good. But I missed the short behavioral cues that you find in Peterson's guides, like "scratches in leaves near road edges," "bobs head and swims half submerged."

St. John's has a Park Ranger-led walk on Francis Bay trail that was very productive.

Preciise, informative and good value for money March 27 2006
By J. Bursnall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Provides color plates for all species found in the West Indies, and helpful maps alongside the text, whenever necessary. All that you need for a field guide, at a reasonable price. It more than lives up to Princeton's reputation for fine guides,
