The birdlife of the Lesser Antilles – the arc of islands running from Jamaica south to the South American mainland, incorporating the nations of Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago, along with numerous dependencies – is the focus of this comprehensive yet portable new field guide. The islands are rich in birdlife and hold more than 40 endemic species, along with numerous range-restricted species, though each island’s avifauna is unique. It is a magical region for a travelling naturalist to explore, with endemic parrots, orioles, pigeons, warblers and more.

Birds of the Lesser Antilles is the perfect companion for any wildlife-savvy visitor to the islands, especially those on multi-island trips. It includes superb photography of more than 300 commonly encountered species across the islands, including all endemics and with many subspecies included. Concise text accompanies the photos to guide identification.
