I really like this book. The paintings are excellent and the plates are nicely spaced. However. it really is not the best choice for a primary field guide. There is no way to compare similar species and the tiny maps are difficult to peruse. Keep your Sibley or Peterson for ID purposes. Buy it as a handy book to have at hand when you read about some obscure species and want to know what it looks like.
