The James Bond book is actually _Field Guide to the  Birds of the West 
Indies; A Guide to all the Species of Birds Known from the  Greater Antilles, 
Antilles and Bahama Islands_ . It was illustrated by  the great bird artist, 
Don Eckelberry. First published in 1947, it's still in  print as a Peterson 
field guide. DV
