About the Book
Anguilla is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Miles of white powdery sand that can't be topped. With several ponds dotting the main island and a number of offshore islands and cays, a large number of birds make Anguilla their home for at least some part of the year. In particular, Dog Island has become an integral part of the breeding of seabirds throughout the Caribbean.
This book highlights just a few of the many species found on this tiny island paradise.
