I agree with comments below. However, there are many Galapagos endemics
not in the Ridgley...maybe I am wrong....., but you can't go wrong with
"A Guide to the Birds of the Galapagos Islands", Castro, I and Phillips
A, Princeton University Press, even though published in 1996.

The general feeling among my travel companions and other birders we met is that the Ridgely guide is the best in terms of info and color accuracy of drawings. Most people divided their copy into three sections - intro, plates, species accounts - and carried only the plates in to the field. Have a great trip - it is an incredible country on all accounts! Great food, nice people, stellar guides, spectacular landscapes and fantastic birds.
