    I Also Recommend:

    The best field guide for beginning birders or casual observers.

    This book was recommended to me when I began birding in 1976. It continues to be the one field guide I keep handy at all times and the one I give to friends or new birders. The illustrations and descriptions accurately depict field marks such as eye rings, wing bars, etc., yet the book is easy to understand and to use. It is especially helpful that the range maps are on the same page as the species descriptions. Although I own numerous other 'bird books'--some larger, others more scholarly, I still use this handy, accurate reference when conducting 'Breakfast With the Birds', or guided walks as a volunteer with the county park system. I would recommend it to anyone of any age who wants to identify the birds they encounter.

    Field Identification - complete, accurate, up-to-date

    Extremely good, complete source for field identification for all of North America. Clear illustrations of both sexes from each species (when needed) often both when perched and in flight. Helpful and brief physical descriptions and song descriptions. Easy to read range maps. Nicely organized by family. Helpful close-ups for distinguishing look-alikes. Good for birdwatchers and zoologists. Good for beginners and experts. Little information on behavior - more of an identification tool.

    Great Bird Book

    I wanted a book to identify species of birds and found this to be a very informative book, with plenty of color illustrations and good descriptions.
