A guide to birdwatching sites in the Greater Antilles: this book shows you where to go and when to visit for the best birding experience. This guide is best used alongside your field guide - it does not include information about identifying birds.
This site guide covers the Greater Antilles, which comprises five groups of islands and six countries. From Cuba, with about 360 species, to the Cayman Islands, with just over 220, the Greater Antilles have recorded just over 550 species. This total includes more than 100 single island endemics and many more restricted range species, making the islands a very attractive proposition to the visiting birder.
The site accounts have details of location and tips on birding strategy and accommodation. More than 80 sites are described, many with accompanying maps. A full species list shows exactly what has been seen in each country, and the selective list helps to target the best places to visit. As well as covering the best birding sites, the authors have tried to include some locations close to main holiday centres used by birders with families. This is a site guide, not an identification guide.
