Bird Watching: Further Information
Further information about birding on Tobago
Birds of Trinidad & Tobago – Richard ffrench
The standard field guide to the birds of Tobago.
A Birdwatchers Guide to Trinidad and Tobago -
The 2004 edition contains lots of useful site information, but sadly no colour illustration. With over 25 years experience birding in Trinidad and Tobago, Bill Murphy is undoubtedly a true expert on the subject. His book is supplemented by a useful website (www.birderbill.us) with lots of useful information and resources for birders considering the twin-isles for a birding holiday.
