    Description

    A guide to birdwatching sites in the Canary Islands: this book shows you where to go and when to visit for the best birding experience. This guide is best used alongside your field guide - it does not include information about identifying birds.

    This site guide provides detailed information on the best birding spots on this attractive island archipelago. Each site entry gives location and access, accommodation, birding strategy and species expected to be seen. It also includes a selective bird list giving brief details on the distribution and status of the uncommon birds which may be found, cross-referenced to site information, as well as a full species list. It includes additional useful information on planning a trip, such as travel options, climate and clothing, and health and medical facilities. This is a site guide, not an identification guide.
