An outstanding contribution to Caribbean ornithology, this guide will be an invaluable reference for the identification of the diverse and unique avifauna of the Dominican Republic and Haiti. It provides accurate and up-to-date summaries of the distribution of the island's birds while providing appropriate descriptions to enable identification of the species known from Hispaniola and associated satellite islands. Included, too, are useful notes on status, behavior, ecology, and distribution, some of which have not been previously published. All told, this guide will be an indispensable tool for visiting birdwatchers and will likely encourage ecotourism on the island, while stimulating interest in the study and conservation of the island's endangered endemic avifauna.
