Birds of Trinidad and Tobago

The classic guide to Trinidad and Tobago avifauna has always been Richard ffrench’s Birds of Trinidad and Tobago, which is currently in its third edition (coauthored with Roger Neckles).  Another book, also titled Birds of Trinidad and Tobago, was published in the Helm Field Guides series earlier this year.  It was it was authored by Floyd Hayes (formerly of the University of the West Indies and Caribbean Union College in Trinidad), Martyn Kenefick (who distributed the Southern Caribbean bird alert) and Robin Restall, a Venezuelan-based “ornithologist, writer and artist”.

I haven’t seen the book yet, but Floyd and Martyn are solid birders.  Restall has written quite a few bird books as well.  At 256 pages it’s a little shorter than ffrench’s 426-page second edition.  Hopefully when Carol gets a copy I can get her to write a review.
