Several European birding companies also provide tours to Costa Rica. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. Prices will vary depending on where you live; but I think you get the idea. These have been of great help to bird watchers visiting the area. Easy-to-use design that helps beginners. For those of you who are new to Birdwatching I should explain that the entire world has 8,600 different species spread thinly over the varied habitats this planet has between its poles. 534 is a spectacular variety for a country the size of Belize.

There is an extra €25 surcharge for the Guadalquivir day tour. This is no small book to digest - its scope is enormous and it's an excellent reference guide. Often called the birdwatcher's "bible," Roger Tory Peterson's Field Guides revolutionized bird identification and started a series of books on everything from Atmosphere to Wildflowers. A full colour photographic guide to over 100 birds that can be found in gardens, parks and other easily accessible areas in Britain and Europe.

The last third of the book provides an account of each species, including a large map of the distribution of each species. Visits to two important nature preserves—Reserva Delle Saline and Oasi di Vendicari—promise an excellent array of waterbirds and landbirds such as Levantine Shearwater, Eurasian Spoonbill, Black-tailed Godwit, Audouin’s Gull, European Bee-eater, European Roller, Woodchat Shrike, and Italian Sparrow. I expect a regional field guide to contain abbreviated descriptions, but the Stokes guides replicate the material of its parent North American guide in full.

Some of these routes are the best places to watch or photograph birds - in fact a lot of my Spanish Imperial Eagle, Bonelli's Eagle and Black-winged Kite photos were taken on private, where vehicles have restricted access. This book is really good for identifying plants that you see in the field based on their flowers. A summarised version of the book above, small and light, but I would not really call it a field guide. The bird that showed up for the Wings Over Water festival.
