I was surprised and delighted by the simplicity of the detailed pages in this book. Measuring 6 by 4 1 /4 inches, it's small enough to put in a knap sack or Jacket pocket
The book is organized by color, so the user doesn't even have to know the name of the bird to find it in the book. If you see a yellow bird, go to the yellow section. A contrast/compare feature helps the user distinguish between two birds, which are similar in appearance.
Each page also includes other interesting information such as nest types, the number and color of eggs, color of the female and babies. Naturalist information and other facts of interest are also included.

I love this book and give it as a gift all the time. It makes a great gift when you are giving someone a bird feeder to get started. The birds are listed by color so you see a bird, look at its color and look it up in the book by that. So simple. I have also given it to experienced bird watchers as well. It's size is a real plus too. It's smaller in size so easy to carry with you.
