Overview

Introduced in 1977 and completely revised in 1994, these bestselling photographic field guides have become the birding bibles of more than four million enthusiasts. Virtually every bird found in North America is brought to life in a full-color photograph and with textual information on the bird's voice, nesting habits, habitat, range, and interesting behaviors. Accompanying range maps; overhead flight silhouettes; sections on bird-watching, accidental species, and endangered birds make these the most comprehensive field guides to birds available.

Note: the Western Edition covers the Rocky Mountain range and all the states to the west of it, while the Eastern Edition generally covers states east of the Rocky Mountains.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An exciting development for birders: the revised edition of this truly classic field guide (first, 1977) presents 544 Western species with 676 clear, high-quality photographs--which are much more accurate than those in the 1977 edition. Also different: the descriptive portion of the text is arranged by species rather than by habitat. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
