Birds of the West Indies by Kirwan, Levesque, Oberle & Sharpe
AUGUST 15, 2019
Within its 400 pages, the Birds of the West Indies covers 712 species, 550 of them regularly occurring and 190 of those endemic to the region, many of them to single islands. An active birdwatcher, he has found more than 50 species new to Guadeloupe, the Lesser Antilles and, in some cases, the Caribbean as a whole. If a species is monotypic, this is clearly stated. The descriptions end with taxonomic notes focused on recent, species-level changes in HBW/BirdLife taxonomy.
