I'm a very beginner birder. Love this book as it's very easy to find the sections where the bird you see is located. Fits really nicely into a small bag that I carry over my shoulder. Oh, and it's not too heavy to carry either. My husband, who is much more experienced, also loves this guidebook, and recommended that I buy myself one. I'll use this for a long, long time.

I used this field guide on a trip to Florida and was quite pleased with how well it was organized. I enjoyed the introduction, being new to birding, I felt it covered some basics that other guides do not. I like the smaller size, it fits easily into a large purse or backpack and the heavy cover is great if it starts to rain. The illustrations were great and showed pictures of both winter and summer plummage as well as immature birds. I also appreciated the additional bird behavior and voice information. The color coded, pictorial guide is very useful for beginners, making it quicker to identify birds in the field. I also plan on using it for a trip to the northwest and appreciate that it covers all of North America in the smaller sized book. In all I like this guide better than the other 2 that I have used.

This guide is well organized and easy to search. The color illustrations are accurate depictions of the birds. The guide conveniently groups related birds and the layout provides a brief description and distribution map opposite the illustrations, eliminating having to leaf to several areas to get all the needed information on that particular bird. Having owned several field guides through the years, I have found the Kaufman guide one of the most convenient and useful.
