Birds of Cuba is an impressive piece of work, an exceptionally complete field guide to the bird species in this formidable country. This is a valuable book that will fill a void in literature that has existed for a long time, written by people who know Cuban birding best. It represents the guide which will be welcomed by aficionados; that it is the product of an all-Cuban team is a double triumph.
