Description:

Most people associate the Caribbean with palm-fringed sandy beaches, cricket and rum. Mention the West Indies to birders and they think todies and tremblers, among a remarkable array of c.190 endemic species. Furthermore, no fewer than six families are confined to the region, and another (spindalises) virtually so. The region also receives many vagrants from both North and South America, and even transatlantic arrivals from Europe. If this were not sufficient enticement, several of the most poorly known and enigmatic birds in the world - including Ivory-billed Woodpecker and Semper’s Warbler - as well as others requiring further taxonomic investigation, offer additional allure.

* Taxonomy follows the HBW and BirdLife International Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World.

* Detailed texts covering status, habitat and behaviour, age, sex and geographical variation, voice, and confusion species.

* c.1600 illustrations covering all species and distinctive subspecies, birds in flight, males and females, juveniles and non-breeding plumages, where appropriate.

* QR code for each species, linking to the Internet Bird Collection gallery of photos, videos and sounds.

* c.570 full-colour range maps for all species other than vagrants.

* Well-marked subspecies groups receive full accounts, and the distributions of subspecies breeding in the region are clearly mapped.

Features:

* 709 species; c. 190 endemics.

* c.1600 illustrations and c.570 distribution maps.
