I love this book and give it as a gift all the time. It makes a great gift when you are giving someone a bird feeder to get started. The birds are listed by color so you see a bird, look at its color and look it up in the book by that. So simple. I have also given it to experienced bird watchers as well. It's size is a real plus too. It's smaller in size so easy to carry with you.
