"Stiles & Skutch is the original bird guide to Costa Rica and my copy is pretty well thumbed by now. Apart from identification tips, there is a wealth of detail on natural history. A must!"

"My copy of the new Garrigues field guide is in the mail. More up-to-date than the older guide and - more importantly - weighs about two thirds as much. This will certainly be with me on my next trip!"
