About the Author:

Ann Haynes-Sutton is a zoologist and tour leader in Jamaica, where she has lived for more than thirty years. She and her late husband Robert Sutton have written extensively on Jamaican birdlife. Audrey Downer, who died in 2008, was a renowned ornithologist and expert on the birds of Jamaica. Yves-Jacques Rey-Millet has been photographing the birds of the Caribbean for more than thirty years. His superb photography has appeared in many books, including Birds of the Cayman Islands.

Review:

"A comprehensive guide to the birds of this important Caribbean Island. . . . [I]deal for anyone holidaying or visiting Jamaica and can also be used as the main guide for more determined birders."--British Trust for Ornithology Newsletter

"This attractive book, produced by eminently qualified authors Haynes-Sutton, Downer, and Sutton beautifully illustrates the birds of Jamaica. . . . Overall, this is a good book that will be carried by most birders visiting Jamaica; it should be in all libraries with strong ornithological holdings or with strengths in Caribbean natural history."--Choice

"A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Jamaica would make a fine addition to anyone's birding library. The guide is a must for any birder intending to visit Jamaica."--Fritz Brock, Wildlife Activist

"The ideal field guide for anyone birding in Jamaica. Beautifully designed and meticulously detailed, this book is a thorough field guide and admirable reference for all of Jamaica's birds, with a convenient size for comfortable use at all of this Caribbean nation's birding hotspots."--Melissa Mayntz, About.com
