Tuamotu Sandpiper

Southeast French Polynesia and the Pitcairn Group September 2005

  • This part of the world holds some very rare endemics and that was our goal on this trip. The trip started and ended in Papeete, Tahiti. We spent 3 days birding Tahiti itself. From there we flew southeast to an Island called Mangareva....Ron Hoff reports

Tahiti and Moorea, Society Islands, Polynesia 8th to 13th Novenber 2002

  • This was a bit last minute, as we had been expecting to go to Fiji as our Pacific stopover. However, despite this we had a great few days in Polynesia- especially on Moorea, which is a beautiful volcanic island with spectacular scenery and gin clear seas with a coral reef around the island....Neil Osborne reports

  • The fourth guide in a series covering birdwatching sites in the great continents. It describes almost 150 sites in detail and many more in passing. It's primary aim is to help birders make the most of their trips, detailing the endemic and "special" birds to be found at each site as well as the more common and "usual" species. Countries are treated alphabetically, with all the practical information required to make the most of a trip and to avoid wasted time. Included are detailed maps and line drawings

A Field Guide to the Birds of Hawaii and the Tropical Pacific

  • Pratt, Bruner, and Dickinson have produced a superb field guide completely covering all the islands of the tropical Pacific from Hawai'i west through Micronesia. This is a true field guide: it gives the field marks of every species, notes problems in identification with special emphasis on distinguishing similar species, and wastes no space on matters not related to identification.
