    This beautiful book is for new and experienced birders!

    A friend and I were walking a bird nesting trail. I was using my Peterson guide book and he had Birds of Pennsylvania Field Guide. It was much easier to identify birds with this field guide. Actual photographs in their natural habitat are used, and if the female's appearance is substantially different it includes a photo insert rather than only offering a narrative. I have found it difficult to identify birds with certain colors such as olive in the Peterson. These photos have brillance and clarity! As with any good field guide, it gives a description of the bird's size, male, female, and juvenile appearance. Also, it describes the type of materials used in nest building, it's shape, typical location, and how many broods it might have each year. Here's an example of its detail. A black-capped chickadee builds its nest mostly with green moss and lines it with animal fur. I had seen perhaps 4" of moss in the nest for days, so when I saw a bit of animal fur..bingo! eggs soon appeared. The book describes the appearance of the eggs and how many you might find. Since we're following the nesting stages on the trail, it's great to know the mating habits, the nest building process, the incubation period for the eggs, the fledging period, etc. It includes the migration patterns, sounds, what type of food it offers, and here's the most helpful information to help identify the birds..it tells you the species that you might want to compare it to in order to further learn ways to distinguish your birds one from another! Its important to note that if someone is going to get close to nests, they should first go into a reputable site to know how to responsibly do so. The CDs are delightful to listen to! This set is a valuable reference to a birder of any level.
