The first comprehensive guide to finding birds on the islands of The Bahamas and The Turks and Caicos. Complete descriptions of more than 150 birding sites, guiding birders to all of the major islands, numerous smaller cays, and the less developed 'Family Islands.' Features a beautiful eight-page photo gallery of many of the Bahamian specialty birds, several of which show up with some regularity in Florida. The islands host an unusual mix of Caribbean and North American species, with over 300 bird species recorded. There are three endemic species: Bahama Woodstar, Bahama Swallow and Bahama Yellowthroat, and a host of other specialties, including such birds as West Indian Whistling-Duck, White-cheeked Pintail, Key West Quail-Dove, Great Lizard-Cuckoo, Cuban Emerald, West Indian Woodpecker, Bahama Mockingbord, Olive-capped Warbler, Stripe-headed Tanager, Greater Antillean Bullfinch and Black-Cowled Oriole. Seabird nesting colonies through the islands and cays host nesting Audubon's Shearwaters, White-tailed-Tropicbirds and eight tern species.
