As a young birdwatcher, two books always
grabbed my imagination—as much for their author’s
names as for their exotic avifauna. James Bond’s
Birds of the West Indies (1961) and Richard
ffrench’s A guide to the birds of Trinidad and Tobago
(1973) were both early, landmark publications
which helped to popularize bird study and provide a
foundation for avian conservation in the Caribbean.
