Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Together these new field guides cover the continental United States except western Alaska and Canada; the 100th meridian is the dividing line between regions. In each volume, the taxonomically arranged species accounts mostly one per page; occasionally two similar species are combined include common and scientific names; one to three color photos; terse comments on identifying features, feeding, nesting, other behavior, habitat, voice, and population trends; and a range map. Special "learning pages" precede some difficult groups like gulls and sparrows. Most species of regular occurrence in the region are included; a few extremely local rarities are omitted. The text is clearly written, accurate, and up-to-date; the 1995 AOU American Ornithologists' Union Checklist changes are included. With so many other North American bird guides from the Audubon Society, Roger Tory Peterson, and others currently in print, any new guide should meet some special need. These works are particularly suited to novice birders. Putting all the data about a species on a single page facilitates use e.g., it isn't possible to depict every varying plumage of all species, and the intentional omission of rarities that barely reach the region is valid. The inclusion of population data is unique and valuable. These titles supplement but do not supplant existing guides; the appropriate regional volume is recommended for public and academic libraries.Paul B. Cors, Univ. of Wyoming Lib., Laramie
