This pamphlet is durable, plastic-coated, easy to fold up and slides right into a purse, tote or backpack. A great thing to bring along that doesn't take up much space and adds to the enjoyment of a trip to beautiful Hawaii!

I assumed this would have more info on the birds, but it has the follwing info on them: Name, Scientific Name, Size, Habitat, Origin.

I was hoping for more info for a first time bird watcher such as how to spot them or other charecteristics. It has 38 birds total. It is a fold out laminated card.

For example:

I gave this book as a present for my friend vacationing in Hawaii. She reported it was very useful as it contains more information than the average "bird book."
Sorryyy
A good book to take if traveling to Hawaii. Doesn't take up much room and is handy to carry with you when sight seeing.
