Aves de Cuba

Field Guide to the Birds of Cuba, Spanish-Language Edition
Illustrated by Román Compañy
Foreword by John W. Fitzpatrick

Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean, and its large number of endemic bird species makes it an interesting and increasingly popular destination for birders as tourism expands. This Spanish-language edition of the groundbreaking Field Guide to the Birds of Cuba provides all Spanish-speaking visitors to the country and its citizens with an illustrated field guide to the more than 369 bird species of this island nation for the first time. The guide—with its fifty-one color plates, current distribution maps, and comprehensive species descriptions—includes species that are island residents, migrants, and rarities, as well as twenty-six endemics such as the Bee Hummingbird and Cuban Green Woodpecker that can be seen nowhere else. The information provided by the Cuban author team will allow for easy identification of all of Cuba's birds as well as a greater appreciation of the geography and natural history of this unique island country.
