Editorial Reviews

The Morning Call - LIZ BALL
BOOK GEM
There are always lots of new gardening books to examine on bookstore shelves every spring, so I sometimes overlook other kinds of new books. This spring, however, I noticed a nice little bird field guide that I think is a gem.
"Birds of Pennsylvania" is written by Stan Tekiela, a naturalist who has a syndicated nature column and radio show as well as other books to his credit.
A perfect fit into a pocket, fanny pack or camera case, this 282-page guide focuses on birds found in Pennsylvania either summer, winter or year round.
Excellent photographs of both males and females in their characteristic plumage make identification easy.
Helpful facts about size, color, nesting behavior, eggs, food sources, distinctive flight and song patterns round out the quick portrait of each species

    Good bird identification book

    I purchased the book to classify the birds coming to my feeder. In most cases it was easy to identify the bird, but some photos were difficult to relate to the bird. Since I took pictures it made it easier and I could read the descriptions provided. It was informative about their eating habits and the times of year they would be in our area. I would recommend it to anyone who takes photos, to identify their birds, or any person who just wants to bird watch and determine what bird they are viewing.
