Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A basic birding guide will help identify many birds, yet there are numerous times when a beginning or intermediate birder needs more assistance-added ornithological detail, comparative comments, and more identification tips-that such a field guide does not have space to provide. That's where this new volume will delight and aid. Drawn from the column of the same name in Bird Watcher's Digest, the book is not intended for the field but as preparation before or a check after field identification. Covering 50 common identification challenges, including waterfowl, wading birds, hawks, gulls, crows, warblers, sparrows, and more, the text also provides plentiful comparative color plates illustrating additional marks, postures, and behaviors. Authored by the editor and staff of Bird Watcher's Digest and illustrated by a noted natural history writer and artist, this is an important resource to add to most public and academic collections. Expect it to fly off the shelf. (Illustrations seen in black and white.)-Nancy Moeckel, Miami Univ. Libs., Oxford, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
