A stunning photographic showcase of the birds of Cuba.
Containing hundreds of stunning photographs by Yves-Jacques Rey-Millet, A Photographic Guide to the Birds of the Cuba provides full photographic coverage of every species on the Cuban list. Concise text for each species includes identification, similar species, voice, habitats and behavior, status and distribution, along with a map.
This guide is an essential companion for any birder or naturalist visiting this beautiful and bird-rich island. Cuba is now one of the most popular birding destinations in the world. Its rich avifauna includes 25 endemic species, and the island is also home to a range of regional scarcities and an important stopping point for migrants as they cross the Caribbean.
