It certainly seems to have every species but plumage representations were often just plain wrong, lacking in variations, or not quite right compared to other books. Handy for carrying around in the field but unreliable on its own for proper identification. As usual, take at least three field guides for reference wherever you go.

Being the least bad of the options for Nicaragua certainly doesn't make this "checklist" good. It's very difficult to use for identification, as the area covered is simply to large and the arrangement of the distribution maps at the back of the book makes its use extremely frustrating. But better than nothing, I suppose.
