Nils Navarro, talented Cuban artist and wildlife illustrator, has created a unique field guide for birds native to Cuba and the West Indies, illustrated with his original watercolors. The first chapter provides general information for nature-watching in Cuba, including a habitat guide with photographs. The individual species accounts have paintings, range maps, icons indicating distribution and endangered status and space for birders to make notes. Small illustrations of the birds on the front and back cover of the book provide a quick reference while birding. Navarro aimed this guide for both birdwatchers and field biologists.
