Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • "Graced with bounteous natural beauty, a stable democratic government, and friendly citizens, Costa Rica has become a
    popular destination for travelers from all over the world. Birds play a prominent role in attracting visitors, too. The
    shimmering quetzals, gaudy macaws, and comical toucans only begin to hint at the impressive avian diversity to be found
    throughout this small country."―from the IntroductionThis 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.
