Palau, at the western extremity of Micronesia, is one of the worlds greatest adventure destinations and is largely known for its diving and spectacular scenery. With over 700 spectacular photos, this new book reveals the equally amazing wildlife of these remote and beautiful islands. Talented wildlife photographer Mandy Etpison and ornithologist H. Douglas Pratt have teamed up to produce a book that is not only visually stunning as the islands themselves, but deeply informative about a little-studied island fauna. It is one of the most complete photodocumentations of the natural history of the birds and bats of any archipelago ever published, and it will become an essential reference for Palauan residents, visiting birders, and serious students of island biology. Life histories of many endemic birds are revealed in this book for the first time and all but the rarest of Palaus migratory visitors, as well as some previously unpublished records, are also covered.
