It is not always easy for the amateur birdwatcher to correctly identify a bird as it quickly flies by, but this new and innovative identification guide is designed to remedy this problem. More than 300 species of birds are categorized and arranged by the colors that appear in their plumage, making identification a simple process of noting each bird’s color patterns. Cross-references to detailed field information are included, as is a handy guide noting common locations for major species as well as size comparisons for species with similar colorings. Beautifully illustrated and easy to use, this is a unique and extremely handy spotter’s guide.
