4.0 out of 5 stars easy booklet birds of costa rice
On a trip to Costa Rica this year, the booklet was invaluable. It doesn't give information about each bird but the colours and illustrations are very true. With its help, I was able to spot at least two thirds of the birds pictured- INCLUDING the Resplendent Quetzal.

3.0 out of 5 stars only for the uninitiated
You need something more sophisticated even for a day in Costa Rica.
The similar (but bigger) version for Panama (picked up in Fuerte Amador for $10) was more useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick guide for the amateur naturalist, 7 Dec. 2012

This review is from: Costa Rica Birds: A Folding Pocket Guide to Familiar Species (Pocket Naturalist Guide Series) (Pamphlet)
A handy guide for the casual visitor, but by no means comprehensive. Birds,for example, deserve much greater coverage and more detailed views for proper identification. Good value nevertheless.

3.0 out of 5 stars A handy but basic guide, 23 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This little guide is handy to take in the field but only covers a very limited amount of species. If you have more than a passing interest in butterflies this will not be enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to carry & enough to identify most birds that we saw, 14 April 2013

This review is from: Costa Rica Birds: A Folding Pocket Guide to Familiar Species (Pocket Naturalist Guide Series) (Pamphlet)
We took this pamphlet and the sister product "Costa Rica Wildlife" on our trip to Costa Rica & it was well worth having along (this one more than the wildlife one). It weighs next to nothing & is well laminated so it lived for a fortnight in my backpack, to be pulled out as the occasion required. It's not for the serious bird spotter, but for people like me that just want to identify most of the colourful birds that we saw it's great - I managed to identify about 80% of the birds that we saw using it.

Excellent durable plasticised pamphlet which is perfect for use when out & about on tours.
Enables easy identification of birds as you see them & also perfect for identification of the birds you photographed when back at home as you put them into albums.
