Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This classic field guide is complete and compact enough to fit in any backpack or picnic basket. This edition reflects the revisions in bird classifications, changes in scientific and common names, and includes species that were formerly visitors but are now more commonly seen. Range maps have been updated as well. A thorough introduction shows readers how to use the extensive keys, and the bibliography includes more than two dozen authors and other recent guides and handbooks, as well. The typeface is readable and lighter-appearing than in previous editions; illustrations seem rephotographed and lighter in color. A step up in density from the approachable Golden Guide Birds by Zim and Gabrielson (St. Martins, 2001), this guide should be a standard reference for schools and families who wish to know more about birds. An extensive index and a quick reference index are included. 2001, St. Martin's Press, $15.95. Ages 8 up. Reviewer: Susan Hepler
Library Journal
★ 09/01/2013
A de facto third edition, in 1966 this was the first comprehensive guide to rival Peterson's revolutionary book and the first to have illustrations, text, and maps on facing pages. As handy and compact as they come.

    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.

    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.

    Don't purchase as a nook book

    This book is not worth it. When you open it, the links don't work to the chapters (alright, it tells you that "some" of the links don't work, but really, none of them do). The pictures are not easy to make larger- and take several clicks to get to a viewable size. Then the descriptions are on pages before the pictures sometimes.

    I have the paperback version of this and love it. But as a Nook Book - NOT work it. I wish I could have a refund.
