This is the definitive guide to the birds of these two lovely Caribbean islands. Lying close to the Venezuelan coast, Trinidad and Tobago hold many Neotropical species not found elsewhere in the Caribbean, and have a total bird list of over 450 species, making the pair of islands one of the most bird-rich countries per square mile in the world. Unsurprisingly, the islands are extremely popular with birders. This guide covers all species resident in or regularly visiting the islands. As well as field identification, it deals with habitats and status, range and subspecies, diet, nesting and behaviour. The introduction looks at the general ecology and history of ornithology in the islands.
