Forlagets egen omtale

At the biological crossroads of the Americas, Costa Rica hosts an astonishing
array of plants and animals—over half a million species! Ecotourists, birders,
and biologists come from around the world, drawn by the likelihood of seeing
more than three or four hundred species of birds and other animals during even a
short stay. To help all of these visitors, as well as local residents, identify
and enjoy the wildlife of Costa Rica, Carrol Henderson published Field Guide
to the Wildlife of Costa Rica in 2002
, and it became the instant and
indispensable guide. Now Henderson has created a dedicated field guide to the
birds that travellers are most likely to see, as well as to the unique or
endemic species that are of high interest to birders. Birds of Costa Rica
covers 310 birds—an increase of 124 species from the earlier volume—with
fascinating accounts of the birds’ natural history, identification, and
behaviour gleaned from Henderson’s forty years of travelling and birding in
Costa Rica. All of the accounts include beautiful photographs of the birds, most
of which were taken in the wild by Henderson. There are new updated distribution
maps and a detailed appendix that identifies many of the country’s best
bird-watching locations and lodges, including contact information for trip
planning purposes.
