Ideal for the travelling nature watcher, this useful guide provides a comprehensive overview of the variety of bird-life to be found in Costa Rica. Over 250 native species are included in Pocket Photo Guide to the Birds of Costa Rica, each description supported by a clear colour photograph taken where possible in the bird's natural Costa Rican habitat.
As well as the commoner species likely to be encountered – colourful birds such as the Blue-grey Tanager, Social Flycatcher, Kiskadee, Clay-coloured Robin and Rufous-collared Sparrow – Pocket Photo Guide to the Birds of Costa Rica also focuses on endemics, such as Black-cheeked Ant-Tanager, and endangered species, such as the Bare-necked Umbrellabird and Three-wattled Bellbird. Illustrated with clear colour photography and brief but authoritative descriptions the Pocket Photo Guides highlight the species of birds and animals from each region that the traveller is most likely to see, as well as those that are genuinely endemic (only to be seen in that country or region) or special rarities. The genuine pocket size allows Pocket Photo Guide to the Birds of Costa Rica to be carried around on trips and excursions and will take up minimal rucksack and suitcase space.
