A compact, richly illustrated photographic field guide to all of the birds of Gal pagos, from renowned photographer and writer Tui De Roy

A lifelong resident of Gal pagos, Tui De Roy has been observing, studying, and photographing the islands' astonishing birdlife for sixty years. In A Pocket Guide to Birds of Gal pagos, she distills everything she has learned to create a one-of-a-kind field guide that every birder visiting the archipelago will want to carry with them wherever they go.

A compact yet comprehensive combination of field guide and natural history, the book features more than 600 of De Roy's superb photographs and is packed with detailed, easy-to-access information in bullet-point format. Every resident bird species is fully described and abundantly illustrated, showing different aspects of their life cycle, habitat, and behavior. And the islands' most iconic bird group--Darwin's Finches--is given special attention. With precise descriptions including plumage and beak variations, the book corrects many common identification errors about this group.

Unique in design and content, A Pocket Guide to Birds of Gal pagos is a must-have for all wildlife enthusiasts traveling to this fabled archipelago--and anyone who wants to better understand its spectacular birds.
