"The appearance of this new, compact guide to the birds of Costa Rica should spur even more international birders to come to this avian paradise. I congratulate author and artist on a job well done."

—Robert S. Ridgely, World Land Trust, author of Birds of Ecuador, Birds of Panama, and Birds of South America

“This book is a must for birders visiting Costa Rica. It is compact, easy to carry in the field, and filled with useful information. I highly recommend it.”

—Victor Emanuel

This is the one field guide the novice or experienced birder needs to identify birds in the field in the diverse habitats found in Costa Rica. It features descriptions and illustrations of more than 820 resident and neotropical migrant species found in Costa Rica, all in a compact, portable, user-friendly design. The detailed full-color illustrations show identifying features—including plumage differences among males, females, and juveniles—and views of birds in flight wherever pertinent. Additional features of this all-new guide include:

• 166 original color plates depicting more than 820 species.

• Concise text that describes key field marks for positive identification, as well as habitat, behavior, and

vocalizations.

• Range maps and texts arranged on opposing pages from illustrations for quick, easy reference.

• The most up-to-date bird list for Costa Rica.

• A visual guide to the anatomical features of birds with accompanying explanatory text.

• Quick reference to vultures and raptors in flight.
