This bird guide is perfect for beginners which I am. I love it because it's easy to look up the birds your trying to find by the way the book has them categorized. This is a small handheld book and I keep it in my purse so if I'm out and spot a bird I can just pull it out and find what it is right away. National Geographic makes great field guides and if your a beginner birder then you should definitely pick up one.
