These Audobon Society guides are such good books. I have the Eastern and Western bird guides, and love them. Believe me, I've looked at just about every bird guide on the market, and I think these are the best. Beautiful photographs, informative text, and an ingenius system of color-coding so you can find that bird you saw with minimal effort. Also, the heavy cover resists tearing and wrinkling, so these books will last and can be used in the field for years to come. You've just gotta have one!

GREAT FOR THE HUNTER OR BIRD WATCHER

This is really a superb book to buy. It is lacking in that the text and the photographs are separate but if you look through the book a couple of times it really won't make a difference. It still has superb photos and detailed text. A must buy for any novice or experienced birder

Anyone living on the Eastern area of the U.S. should get this book to learn about the nature around them. Good pictures and information provided.

there is an error with pictures 432 and 634 where they are called red wing blackbird and are obviously different birds. 634 is the red wing blackbird and the other picture 432 shows a small striped bird in the shape of a sparrow.

I was slightly disappointed with this book. The one I had in the past showed birds by color tabs and made it easier to find what you were looking for. Also, there doesn't seem to be as much detailed information on a bird you're trying to identify.
