This is an excellent book for help in identifing backyard birds. It is focused on just the birds most common to NY. It is color coded, so if you see a bird that's red, you look in the red section. It has one 2-page spread per bird, sometimes having a second 2-page spread for the opposite sex, if they look very different. It lists their average size, a description of what the male looks like, a seperate description of what the female looks like, and a third description of what the juvenile looks like! It lists what their nests look like and where you are likely to find them. It describes their eggs and how many they usually have, how long the incubation period is, and info about fledging. Then it lists their migration status and what kind of food they eat. Best of all it has a section about comparing the bird with other simliar birds, like this one's beak is longer than that one's beak. Finally, it lists some notes by the author that are often quite interesting. And, of course, it has pictures of each bird. My family just started bird watching 2 years ago in our backyard and this book has been indispensable! I love it so much that I am buying the version for the state we are moving to in a few months!

The colorful bird photos and informative blurbs make this thick, small/portable bird book great for New York State birders. From young to old, this bird identifier is a good family investment as a handy reference book. "Every home should have one : ) "

My wife and I are having fun with the book. When a bird comes to our feeder we take the book out and identify the bird. Also since it is small it can fit into a coat pocket.
