The Rainforest Publications Galapagos Islands Birds fold-out pocket guide contains 123 illustrated species (roughly 50-100% more than the competition depending on the medium) and is easier to use in the field. Each bird illustration is accompanied by its name in five languages (English, Spanish, French, German, and Latin), and some notes on size or if the bird is rare or endemic.
Our illustrator for the Galapagos Bird guide is Robert Dean. His intricate scientifically accurate illustrations are featured in several Rainforest Publication field guides. Robert has been living in Costa Rica since the early 1990s, and expresses his passion for birds through art.
