Pocket Photo Guide to the Birds of Costa Rica

Pocket Photo Guide to the Birds of Costa Rica

Susan Fogden, Michael Fogden & Patricia Fogden

Please note, this is a reissue of Photographic Guide to Birds of Costa Rica, formerly on the natural history list of New Holland publishers.

Ideal for the travelling nature watcher, this useful guide provides a comprehensive overview of the variety of bird-life to be found in Costa Rica. Over 250 native species are included, each description supported by a clear colour photo taken where possible in the bird's natural Costa Rican habitat. As well as the commoner species likely to be encountered - colourful birds such as the Blue-grey Tanager, Social Flycatcher, Kiskadee, Clay-coloured Robin and Rufous-collared Sparrow - this book also focuses on endemics, such as Black-cheeked Ant-Tanager, and endangered species, such as the Bare-necked Umbrellabird and Three-wattled Bellbird.

Illustrated with clear colour photography and brief but authoritative descriptions the 'Pocket Photo Guides' highlight the species of birds and animals from each region that the traveller is most likely to see, as well as those that are genuinely endemic (only to be seen in that country or region) or special rarities. The genuine pocket size allows Pocket Photo Guide to the Birds of Costa Rica to be carried around on trips and excursions and will take up minimal rucksack and suitcase space. 144 pages.
