Pressestimmen

Fascinating reading... [This] finally eclipses ... the old field guide ... that in its various forms held sway for more than fifty years... The illustrations ... are exceptionally beautiful... Indispensable. -- Stephen Mills Times Literary Supplement The current consensus is that the finest field guide to the exotic archipelagos of the Caribbean is Birds of the West Indies by Herbert Raffaele. Now that I've visited the region a few times, I can definitely agree! ... The abundant illustrations are crisp, colorful, and mostly accurate while the text is succinct yet informative. -- Mike Bergin 10,000 Birds While paging through the new West Indian field guide ... I lost track of several hours, completely captivated by the images before me... [It includes] color plates of surpassing accuracy and ... the text ... is accurate and highly readable. Tropical Audubon Bulletin
