With a rich avifauna of more than 300 species, the three islands that make up the Cayman Islands – Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac – form an increasingly popular birding destination. Although the islands’ sole endemic species, Cayman Islands Thrush, was extinct by the 1940s, the islands have a healthy crop of regional scarcities, as well as breeding visitors from South America and wintering birds from North America. They are also an important stopping point for migrants as they cross the Caribbean.

This comprehensive photographic guide provides full coverage of every species on the Cayman Islands list. The images have been carefully selected to show key features, while the concise text is designed to aid field identification; in addition to a detailed species description, there is information on similar species, voice, habitat and behaviour, world range, and status in the Cayman Islands.
