‘A Pocket Guide to Hawaii’s Birds and Their Habitats’


A Pocket Guide to Hawaii’s Birds has been Hawaii’s best-selling, must-have guide book for birders since its first release in 1996.
It is now being re-released as a new edition complete with more than 340 new photographs. One-hundred and fifty-six species are illustrated — from the Koloa (Hawaiian Duck) to the Elepaio, to the Common Mynah.

This guide is an introduction to the beautiful and varied birds that inhabit America’s only tropical state. Both visitors and residents will learn something that will broaden their horizons and increase their knowledge and appreciation of the birds and the environment of our unique archipelago.

While not a “field guide” in the usual sense, this fact-packed volume helps identify all of the birds likely to be seen while walking, hiking, or exploring the islands’ many natural treasures. In fact, it covers more species than any other small guidebook available today.

Learn how Hawaii’s modern bird community came to be, from the tragic history of the native birds of ancient Hawaii to the dozens of immigrant species seen today.

Learn the special nature of island forest and wetland birds, the long and sad story of the extinction of so many species, how seabirds have made these islands their home base, and how Hawaii came to have more introduced species than anywhere else in the world. Find valuable information about where to see the remaining native birds as well their naturalized neighbors.

A complete and up-to-date Species Checklist is also included.
5 x 7 in., softcover • 148 pages • $8.95

Mutual Publishing, established in 1974, is one of Hawaii’s largest trade publishing houses. It offers one of the largest selections of Hawaiian titles in the Islands, and a full range of private label services.
