At last, a first-rate comprehensive guide to the birds of Oceania. All species (including those that have become extinct in historical times) known from Micronesia, Polynesia (except Easter Island and New Zealand) and Fiji are covered in the text; all but the accidentals and a few poorly known extinct forms are illustrated.

A "hypothetical list," regional checklists, and maps and a glossary are appended. Based on extensive field work in the region, this authoritative handbook is highly recommended. Paul B.

A comprehensive book, but the illustrations are small, and truthfully useless in the field. For some one who travels the islands extensively or wants a home review volume it's... Read morePublished on March 21, 2013 by M. Hale
