Birds of the Dominican Republic and Haiti fills a large void in the literature on birdwatching and the environment in these tropical countries. The first comprehensive field guide devoted to Hispaniola's birds, it provides detailed accounts for more than 300 species, including thirty-one endemic species.

Included in the species descriptions are details on key field marks, similar species, voice, habitats, geographic distribution on Hispaniola, status, nesting, range, and local names used in both the Dominican Republic and Haiti. The authors also comment on ecology, behavior, and taxonomic status. The book provides color illustrations and range maps based on the most recent data available. But the authors' intent is to provide more than just a means of identifying birds. The guide also underscores the importance of promoting the conservation of migratory and resident birds, and building support for environmental measures.

Review:

"[This book] fills a major gap in the ornithological literature of the West Indies. . . . Ornithologists and birders interested in West Indies birds, and especially Hispaniola's birds, now have an excellent, modern guide to these species. The book is highly recommended to these enthusiasts, as well as naturalists, conversation biologists, and academic and public libraries."--International Hawkwatcher

"The first comprehensive field guide to the birds of Hispaniola."--Wildlife Activist

"If you are thinking of going anywhere near Haiti or Dominican Republic, pick this one up. It's an excellent book."--Geoff Carpentier, OFO News

"Any visitor to the island will find the guide an indispensable asset."--Chris Doughty, The Bird Observer

"This well-illustrated new work fills a large void in the literature on birdwatching and the environment in these tropical countries. Touted as the first comprehensive field guide to Hispaniola's birds, it provides detailed accounts for more than 300 species, including thirty-one endemic species. . . . An important contribution to the literature that will provide a handy guide to the region."--Charles E. Keller, Indiana Audubon Quarterly

"This is a wonderful addition to the literature on West Indian birds and a must-have book for anyone headed for Hispaniola or interested in the distribution and abundance of that island's birds. It is both attractive and detailed."--John R. Faaborg, North American Bird Bander
