Cuba has a number of endemics and near-endemics, so a comprehensive field guide is a must for any visiting birder. Unfortunately since publication, four birds described as sub-species in the book have been elevated to full species status. This is not a flaw, just unfortunate timing, so for Common Black Hawk, read Cuban Black Hawk, for Greater Antillean Nightjar read Cuban Nightjar and for Black-cowled Oriole, you've guessed it, Cuban Oriole. Grey-headed Quail Dove keeps that name.
The layout. Yuck. Illustration and description on the same page. Pretty much all standard works observe this convention. It is easier on the book. Failing that, for goodness sake tell us which page the description is on when we're looking at the picture.
I found some of the illustrations rather bland and cannot understand why each page of illustrations has a shadow page to its left, with the species name. Seems like a waste of paper and ink.
If you're used to European field guides, you're unlikely to be impressed, but if you want to identify Cuban species, then buy this book anyway.
