Bermuda is a fascinating group of islands in the North Atlantic. Located approximately 1,000 miles north of The Bahamas, and 600 miles off the coast of the United States, Bermuda enjoys a sub-tropical climate and a shoreline washed by crystal waters warmed by The Gulf Stream. Despite its small size and relative isolation, Bermuda is an exciting destination for birdwatchers. Although there are only 22 resident breeding bird species, the complex array of migrants and vagrants that visit the island every year have resulted in a list of nearly 360 different species. This impressive list of species ensures that there will always be something new and interesting to see in Bermuda.Written in a style that should appeal to both the serious ornithologist and those merely interested in identifying a common species seen in the garden, this guide aims to give the reader a general overview of Bermuda's birds in an easy to read and understandable format. Illustrated throughout with colour photographs, the book contains full accounts of the more common species found in Bermuda, along with all the resident species, such as the legendary Cahow. Information includes detailed descriptions for males, females and immatures, identification tips and comparisons with similar, potentially confusing species, habitat preferences and the species' overall status on the island. The book also contains a full species list for Bermuda, including all confirmed species recorded for the island. This list gives the reader information on abundance ratings of each species and its year-round status on the island.

This publication is a compilation of current knowledge of the numbers, distribution and movements of one of the most remarkable groups of birds in the region covered by the African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (AEWA).

The maps are supported by informative species accounts that highlight the movements, population status and conservation of waders in the AEWA region.
