This guide is also available in Spanish. The Cuban avifauna includes more than 370 species, with a high level of endemism, both local and regional. Considering the importance of endemics for the conservation of biodiversity, and thanks to the information gathered during years of field work in Cuba, Mr. Navarro decided to produce a field guide focused on Cuban endemics. The 168 page full-color guide is divided into five chapters: general information about Cuba; species accounts; guide to habitats with photographs of the birds in their habitats; levels of threat; and finally, maps, datasheets and space for notes. The front and back covers of the book provide quick identification of endemic birds, and also function as an illustrated checklist. Nils Navarro's outstanding original watercolor illustrations cover the 26 endemic species of Cuba as well as another 22 endemics of the West Indies that inhabit the archipelago. ". . . A rare field guide that is both practical and beautiful to behold! This dynamic resource is a result of many years of dedicated research, persistent determination, and artistic brilliance. Congratulations to Nils and the editors on a gem of a field guide!" Gary Markowski, Founder and Director, Caribbean Conservation Trust, Connecticut. ". . . Nils is, without a doubt, one of the most hard-working and committed conservationists that I have met in the Caribbean. Nils is an extremely talented wildlife artist. Recognizing that art has the capacity to inspire and touch the hearts of people, Nils has been using art to promote the conservation of birds and their habitats in Cuba and throughout the Caribbean region." Lisa G. Sorenson, Ph.D., Adjunct professor Boston University President, BirdsCaribbean. ". . . Nils has a passion for his work, and that passion shines through in this book.
