Birds of Trinidad & Tobago, Third Edition, Kenefick 2019
Trinidad & Tobago are popular tourist destinations, and the islands are also a top location for visiting birders. This comprehensive and portable field guide covers every species found on the islands. The concise text includes descriptions of every species, highlighting plumage variation and distinctions from similar species.
The text has been updated by Martyn Kenefick and Floyd Hayes and provides information on plumage, voice, similar species and status. The book is very thorough and all 471 species on the Trinidad and Tobago list are dealt with, nearly 200 of these being vagrants. Even formerly resident species such as Horned Screamer Anhima cornuta are included – despite none being seen since 1964. Care has been taken to show migrants (e.g. the warblers) in all possible plumages that might be encountered. Nomenclature mainly follows the AOU and South American Checklist Committee.
