The giant of the Greater Antilles, Cuba hosts a unique assemblage of resident and Caribbean birds, including 21 endemics like Cuban Trogon, Cuban Tody, Fernandina's Flicker, and Bee Hummingbird--the world's smallest bird. Most of the island nation consists of lowland savanna, scrub, and forests, but massive wetlands and montane cloud forests allow for an especially diverse assemblage of avian life. To really get to know these ecosystems, many people first look to birds, given their beauty and ubiquity. To familiarize you with the species you are most likely to encounter, we have created this beautifully illustrated reference that features 140 common and familiar species, as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 bird-finding hotspots and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is a terrific companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and birders who want to sharpen their identification skills and peer more closely into the fascinating lives of Cuba's birds. Made in the USA.
