The Birds of Costa Rica: A Field Guide
on December 3, 2007
I will be traveling to Costa Rica in January and I'm now studying the birds using this guide along with photos of birds seen there in the past year or so. I love the descriptions, they will be extremely helpful for those of us who have not experienced those confusing, unique families of birds ("ant" birds for instance) that don't fit comfortably within the ones that occur in the US.
My only criticism is that the colors on some of the drawings, especially the hummingbirds, are not true according to the pictures I've seen.
I will write another review when I get back from my trip.
