    This is the perfect bird guide book for BEGINNERS. When I first

    This is the perfect bird guide book for BEGINNERS. When I first set up several bird feeders in my yard I didn't know a finch from a sparrow from a wren. So - when trying to use my previous guide books - I could never find the bird that I was looking at on my feeders before the bird flew off. This book is color coded so locating species and variations within species is quick and easy.

    Eventually I never needed to use this or any other bird guide again although once the bird watcher is skilled enough to identify bird groups and species, then a step to a more advanced series such as a Peterson Field Guide is an option. But for getting your feet wet - go no further than this book.

    Perfect for my needs

    This book is great for finding out what types of birds are at my feeder. I love the color coding. It really helps to find the birds. ANd if the males and females of the species are different colors, they are shown in both sections.

    a marvellous little book

    I found this little book while browsing among bird books in my local B&N store and it won out over all the rest for my purposes. We have many visitors to our backyard feeders and shrubs. For each bird the book has beautiful pictures, including male and female, immature, etc., as relevant; excellent descriptions of voice (songs and calls); habitat; nesting, including complete egg information; and feeding and attracting information. It is attractive and well laid out. It has an unusual bird organization pattern: small to large (beak to tail length given in inches) and groupings by dominant color that can be found on the right edge of the book pages to aid in identifying a particular bird. There are bigger books for advanced birdwatching, but this one is excellent and delightful just to peruse!
