'A must have for those birding the region.' - Ian Paulsen, Birdbooker Report
'This island trio is located just off the coast of South America, but, fascinatingly, the birdlife has a strong West Indian element and includes migrants from the north as well as visitors from the south. (American Redstart, Northern Waterthrush, Ovenbird, and Prothonotary, Blackpoll, and Connecticut warblers occur regularly.) Until this handy book, there was no comprehensive field guide.' - Bird Watching Magazine.
