Summary "Cuba is home to a diverse avifauna, rich with endemic species. The island is also home to a range of regional scarcities and acts as an important stopping point for migrants as they cross the Caribbean. This comprehensive photographic guide provides full coverage of every species on the Cuban list. The images have been carefully selected to show key features, while the concise text is designed to aid field identification, providing essential information on ageing and sexing, voice, similar species, habitat and behaviour. Each species account includes a map showing distribution on the island and is accompanied by notes on world range and status in Cuba"-- Provided by publisher.
