If you plan to explore nature in Costa Rica, you need this book. We just returned from a trip (group tour) in Costa Rica. This is (as advertised) the definitive field guide for birds in that country, as confirmed by our local guide The birds are spectacular, and the book’s illustrations with maps of bird locales were invaluable for quick identification. This small country contains many ecosystems, and many bird species are confined to specific areas.

The bird book to get if you are only going to get one for Costa Rica! Long-time Central American birder told me this is the one to get. I agree.
