The Daily News -Birds of Washingtom Field Guide," by Stan Tekiela. Published by Adventure Publications.
311 pages. $13.95.
This handy-sized volume is the only book a beginning birder needs in these parts. It covers 130 species of birds found only in Washington.
Most birding books are organized by species. This one does it by the birds' predominant color, so if you glimpse a flash of red or yellow, you can narrow down the possibilities. But that means different birds of a feather, such as mallards and buffelheads, are spread throughout the book.
The glossy-paper book has color photographs of each bird, along , with Maps of their summer and winter ranges
