Birds of Puerto Vallarta: A Guide to Common and Notable Neotropical Species

ISBN: 978-1-936913-48-0
Authors: Greg R. Homel

Birds of Puerto Vallarta is a quick and easy to use, light-weight, durable, all-weather field guide to the inspiring and incredibly varied birdlife of Puerto Vallarta. Stunning digital photographs feature 120 common and notable Neotropical specialties, enable users to easily identify most birds they encounter—day or night—in Puerto Vallarta, including Cabo Corrientes (El Tuito, Rancho Primavera, Mayto, Yelapa, Boca de Tomatlan, and Vallarta Botanical Gardens, etc.), Nuevo Vallarta (including Laguna Del Quelele), Valle Rio Ameca, Bahia de Banderas (including Islas Marietas Marine Sanctuary), Punta Mita, Sayulita, and points between.

Aimed at beginning, intermediate and international birders, the guide takes into consideration that most users will concentrate on identifying the colorful Neotropical Mexican specialties they encounter in the region, so it includes mostly these birds. It takes this focus a step further by acknowledging the fact that birding is growing in popularity among Mexican nationals as well, so the nomenclature reflects this by including English, Spanish and Latin names for each included species. As a special bonus, the guide does double-duty as a birding site guide as well as a bird field guide by the inclusion of a key which indicates the best locations to find the included specialties.

This affordable guide will easily fit into any daypack, pocket or glove compartment, facilitating easy field identification—whether in a local garden, on a family vacation, or on a serious birding trip visiting the best birding hot spots in the beautiful Vallarta region.

Size: 4”x 9” folded; 9” x 24.5” unfolded.
