, Patricia E. & Yves-Jacques Rey-Millet - A Photographic Guide to the Birds of the Cayman Islands
, uitg.: Christopher Helm (2013), ISBN 9781408123645,
paperback, 288 blz., Ä32,50
With a rich avifauna of more than 300 species, the three islands that make up the Cayman Islands - Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac - form an increasingly popular birding destination. Although the islands' sole endemic species, Cayman Islands Thrush, was extinct by the 1940s, the islands have a healthy crop of regional scarcities and are an important migrant stopping point as they cross the Caribbean.
Containing hundreds of stunning photographs by Yves-Jacques Rey-Millet, A Photographic Guide to the Birds of the Cayman Islands, the latest addition to Helm's Photographic Guides series, provides full photographic coverage of every species on the Cayman Islands list. Concise text for each species includes identification, similar species, voice, habitats and behaviour, status and distribution.

Recreational Guide for scuba divers, snorkelers and everyon who loves the Cayman Islands. This is a 6'x9" map of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman showing the names and locations of over 100 of the most notable scuba diving and snorkeling spots in the Cayman Islands as well as 100 or so species of the most common Caribbean coral reef creatures found in Cayman Islands waters.
Franko's Map of The Cayman Islands Side 1 The front side of my map shows Grand Cayman as a separate map and the Sister Islands Little Cayman and Cayman Brac together as another map. Each island is mapped in a unique style that shows the beauty of the island and the surrounding Caribbean Sea. Every detail of the coast can be clearly seen along with a unique depiction of the bathymetry (underwater topography) so the viewer can visualize how the waters just beyond each island's shore plunges into the deep.
Map coloring shows you where it is green and covered by thick Cayman forest or where it is a swampy mangrove or where it is a city. All of the main roads as well as a few trails are shown as well so this is the perfect navigation map as you cruise around in your left-hand-drive rental car.
