101+ Common Birds of Costa Rica
A Birders Companion
the Apple Books & Kindle stores
101+ Common Birds of Costa Rica is our definitive field guide to the more common birds of a not so common region of the world.
It’s a book for birdwatchers of all skill levels and every birder or naturalists who is planning or just happily dreaming of a trip to this amazing country will be delighted with the quality of information in this book.
The layout and pages are organized both in a way that makes it a pleasure to use in the field or for just simply browsing over a cup of coffee.
Links, calls and videos do not function on Kindle purchases that are viewed in the Kindle app on Apple devices. They do work on 3rd gen or newer Kindle Fire and Android devices.
To have interactive content such as links, audio and video on Apple Devices please purchase through Apple Books.
Fine Print Alert
Please note; Any previously purchased Kindle versions of this book will not be entitled to any future updates. Kindle considers updates other than grammar and spelling fixes to be a new book which means you have to purchase the book again to get the updates.
Apple however allows significant updates so previous purchasers of the books would be notified of the free update which they will then be able to download from the Apple Books store.
We have no control over Kindle’s policies and regret this one particularly as the plan all along was to be able to keep the material current with free updates.
A side note
Because of the file size of the book Kindle takes 70% of the retail price. Apple takes 30% for the same file. From an authors point of view score one for Apple..
All this fine print stuff stands till Apple or Kindle change their minds.

Since this is an ongoing project we thought it would be cool to show actual work and actual progress. 30 hours on the iPad distilled down to a 2 minute vid using a nifty painting and drawing app called Procreate.

The bit about us

Bryan loved to draw birds when he was a kid. Now he's at it again and having fun.
What can we say, she is the glue in all this. We all pretty much orbit around Carey and we’re grateful for it.
