Book Description

Aug. 3 2000 Comstock books
The richness and diversity of Cuban birdlife features 354 recorded species that represent 20 orders and 60 families. The 21 living endemic species include the charming Cuban Tody, the striking and elegant Cuban Trogon (the national bird), the colorful Cuban Green Woodpecker, and the smallest of all birds, the Bee Hummingbird.This compact and portable field reference will help Cubans, visitors from abroad, and bird enthusiasts identify and enjoy the island's avifauna. The 51 color plates and 662 images accurately illustrate male, female, and juvenile plumages (in some cases for the first time). Many migratory species are depicted in both winter and breeding colors, providing a glimpse of many common North American birds as they appear when away from northern surroundings. In the comprehensive Field Guide to the Birds of Cuba Orlando H. Garrido and Arturo Kirkconnell share their vast wealth of knowledge about birds-and habitats-that are too little known.Field Guide to the Birds of Cuba contains:* Species accounts including habitat descriptions, similar species, range, status, nesting and feeding habits, and vocalizations.* Checklists of endemic species and subspecies.* Background on the geography, climate, geology, paleontology, and natural history of Cuba.*144 maps that show regional boundaries and vegetative habitats as well as the local distribution of each species.

By Birder
This is an excellent field guide for birding in Cuba. The paperback version is light enough to take into the field. It travels well. The plates and written descriptions are excellent. It is a complete guide, and one that everyone will find valuable.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING April 7 2011
A great bird book. The pictures allow for easy identification. The only annoying thing is you have to go to the index to find the page number that has the information on the bird, however that is hardly a bother in the long run. If you are going to Cuba and you like birds, take this book!!!!
