Book Description

23 Mar 2004 Macmillan Caribbean Natural History
The Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago provide a fascinating opportunity for anyone interested in natural history, particularly birds. Trinidad's position, a mere ten miles from the South American mainland, means that its flora and fauna are essentially continental by nature. This second edition has been completely revised and updated and features 106 species of birds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable birds 14 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase
If you're visiting Trinidad or Tobago and like to know what the birds are that are flitting in front of you, this is a useful guide. Most of the commonly seen birds are there. There are birds on Tobago that are not seen in Trinidad and vice-versa. Unless you are reasonably into birds, this is a good little guide. Personally I bought this and the Birds of Trinidad and Tobago Helm Guide[Martin Kenefick and others]. I found both useful, the real photos by Roger Neckles in the Richard Ffrench book being an additional help. If you are in this area, I do recommend going to the Asa Wright centre and Caroni Swamp, both in Trinidad. The first has brilliantly coloured birds and in the swamp you can see all the vivid scarlet ibis fly in to roost by late afternoon, a magnificent spectacle for anyone who enjoys wildlife. I enjoy bird photography and both books proved very useful. It is worth paying for a local guide on both islands as they'll point out birds you'll otherwise not notice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good pocket guide 19 Aug 2011
The book is compact and has excellent colour photos of every bird listed. Some related species are included in the text of the relative but not illustrated, that's good. Descriptions are excellent as they describe the appearance of each bird, it's habitat, and its behaviour. Two frustrations are (i) the birds are grouped by habitat, yet in reality birds cross into other habitats, so you still have to trawl through much of the book when identifying, and (ii) quite a number of birds occur only on Trinidad or only on Tobago and there is no mark near the title of the bird to indicate this, you have to read the text through in detail to find its distribution. Overall it's a very good beginners pocket guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birding Holiday on Trinidad & Tobago 27 Dec 2011
By Anon
Verified Purchase
I bought this book to help me learn some of the commoner birds on T&T prior to birding there. Found it extremely helpful. The photographs were splendid. It doesn't cover all the birds but is a good starting point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight and clear 8 Jan 2014
By HR
Verified Purchase
Nice and lightweight for travel as an extra book. Will be using this updated photo-guide alongside a traditional field guide. Always good to compare photos with drawings (and to have in case you haven't managed to get a pic yourself!)

3.0 out of 5 stars A useful guide for the casual birdwatcher 19 Mar 2013
By laxton
Verified Purchase
This is an inexpensive photographic guide to 106 species. However for the serious birdwatcher it leaves you wanting. I found it helpful and informative but at least 10 species I saw were not depicted in the guide and some not even mentioned.
