      For fans of the real James Bond and Birds of the West Indies, a mystery still surrounds the very first edition, published in by the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia and printed by the Waverly Press in Baltimore. The mystery is: Why was the book published with two different bindings, one gray and the other dull green, with slightly different type on the spine? The title page for.

        Book Review - Birds of the West Indies, Second Edition - Princeton University Press If there is one constant in the world of ornithology today, it is that taxonomy and distribution are constantly undergoing revision, and new field guides are required to keep abreast of lumps and splits, and changes in the range of many species. Mention the West Indies to birders and they think todies and tremblers, among a remarkable array of c. endemic species. Furthermore, no fewer than six families are confined to the region, and another (spindalises) virtually so. The region also receives many vagrants from both North and South America, and even transatlantic arrivals from Europe.

Back and Front Covers of the Endemic Birds of the West Indies Colouring Book “ We will be shipping out boxes, free of charge, to our partners to use in their education programs on birds and nature — and of course for their Caribbean Endemic Bird Festival (CEBF) celebrations,” noted Lisa Sorenson, Executive Director of BirdsCaribbean.

An introductory section explains the layout of the book and describes the region. It also suggests 29 locations to go birding across the island groups.

There is much information on how the West Indies avifauna has been discovered over time, and how modern-day conservationists are trying to keep it safe. The West Indies region provides birders with the opportunity to see a huge range of endemics. This book will be snapped up by those who have already experienced the region’s incredible bird diversity and will be an invaluable addition to the luggage of those now eager to visit.

Media reviews For serious birders visiting these islands, Birds of the West Indies will undoubtedly prove to be indispensable, even for visits to single islands in the Range: £ - £ Having recently been to the West Indies bird watching and bird ringing, I was disappointed at the selection of bird guides available for the region with them all appearing to be reprints of older books, which while serviceable, are definitely in need of updating.

Therefore, it’s good to see a new, modern guide for the region come out, even if it’s a few weeks too late for me to make use of. A new iteration of Birds of the West Indies came out last year. It arrived after I submitted my manuscript, so it's not mentioned in The Real James Bond.

But that doesn't preclude my posting about it. I recently ordered a copy of the book, and it's pretty awesome. WILLIAM SUAREZ BIRDING TOURS is a Florida based company specialized in offers professional bird watching tours to the West Indies.

Our tours are SUITED TO ALL LEVELS, from beginner to the most expert birder, and offer fantastic experiences in enjoyable, friendly, small-group settings. If you love birds and are interested in getting to know this isolated, unique and beautiful avifauna.

"Winner of the Best Bird Book - West Indies, Worldtwitch" About the Author. Herbert Raffaele is Chief of the Office of International Conservation of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. He is the author of A Guide to the Birds of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands (Princeton).Cited by:   A good compliment to this book would be Wheatly and Brewer's "Where to Watch Birds in Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean" which has all the specific lists, maps and directions you would need.

If you don't get this book (A Birder's West Indies) you will though miss out on a more literary and rich reading experience of the islands/5(3).

Secondly, whilst a quality book it really isn't useable as a field guide. The illustrations are black and white which is little help when in the field trying to identify a sighting.

Also some of the birds are long since extinct or not found in the West Indies anymore. A quality book and a nice gift / trivia piece for Bond and Bird collectors/5(8).
