The first guide to all the birds known to occur in the West Indies, including migrants and vagrants, over 560 species in all. Detailed introductory sections are followed by the plates and then species texts. Each text includes sections on iedentification, local names, voice, status and range, habitat, nesting, and general comments of interest about the bird. Accompanying each species text is a distribution map, excluding vagrants and extinct species, showing the bird’s range within the West Indies. There is also a Locality Checklist at the end of the book, providing an at-a-glance, island by island guide to the distribution and status of every species.
