    Wonderful!

    Bought this book because my toddler became interested in birds, and I couldn't tell one bird from the next. The photos are stunning; there's a full page picture of every Michigan bird. The information is succinct and easy to understand, right on the opposite page of each photo. We keep this book by the window with a pair of binoculars. We haven't found a bird in our yard that we could not find in this very user friendly guide! Great for budding ornothologists!
