Peterson Field Guide to Birds of Eastern and Central North America, Sixth Edition (PagePerfect NOOK Book) by Roger Tory Peterson

With all-new range maps, updated text, and 40 new paintings, the completely revised editions of two classic Peterson Field Guides are sure to be valuable additions to any birder's pocket or daypack. At a trim size of 5 x 8, they are portable but also beautifully illustrated. Photographs, while modern looking and colorful, capture just one moment in time. The paintings in these guides, however, show all of a bird's key field marks and use the Peterson Identification System to make bird identification easier for beginning and intermediate bird watchers. A team of professional birders has updated the text, the maps, and the art for these authoritative guides. Expert birders also created 35 entertaining and easy-to-use video podcasts, which are available to download. They make fun and educational viewing on a computer desktop or MP3 player. The best-selling field guide since 1934, the Peterson Field Guide to Birds of Eastern and Central North America is now in its sixth edition. With clear, succinct accounts of more than 500 species, accurate and beautiful paintings on 159 color plates, and 512 maps annotated with extensive range information, this is the most up-to-date and accessible field guide for bird watchers in eastern North America.

I had high expectations for the electronic version of this field guide. I was disappointed with image quality. The image quality in a field guide is vital and these lack crispness and detail.

The graphics in this are not up to the standards of my Nook. I will use it, because it covers what I want in a field book and it is one less thing to carry on a trip, but I am disappointed in the fuzzy pictures.

The image quality is a total disappoinment. Should have read the review before I bought it.

this should be a discount nook book.. the pictures are really bad and when you zoom in it is very blocky, like minecraft can only view the book long ways on nook if you try to view the other way big blouches of black come out of the maps until you zoom in to the point that you can not read the whole sentence...very disappointing..concidering i was given this for my birthday and its not even worth keeping it on my memory space ....I thought Peterson was better than this ...shame on you. taking the easy way out and selling garbage.

I ordered this book, Peterson's guide to birds, and then was told it wasn't available as app but it would be available soon so I should wait and I have since May 2013! Since then I have asked.for a refund but have received no reply. I will never order from Nook again.

I Have been using Peterson Bird guides for years! I love it! I just wanted to update my book older edition. So I bought updated physical book! I am very pleased. The illustrations are not too small to see and are great quality if you buy the physical book!  The only thing I disapprove of is the lesser quality material of the book cover (front and back) compared to my older one.  The newer one has just a hard laminated paper covering.. gezz physical quality of books have really degraded over the years.... my 5th addition (older) has a canvas like texture and is reinforced and is some what  water and spill resistant.   I even spilt water on the cover once and ti was ok! just whipped it up and let it air dry! It also held up to years of  rough outdoors and indoor use! To me one of the most important aspect of every book is how it feels in my hands... So of  course I was a little disappointed to see the material quality downgrade! However, over all material quality of everything on the market including cars has really downgraded these days! We live in an age of throwaway society.. What should I expect! At least the book contents themselves are the same amazing quality and the book is still the same price! Still I am displeased in the material and feel quality, it really does sadden me. To make long story short! Amazing Content ! Poor Physical material quality! I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking to update their field guide!

As the cats of Horseclan travel west of Slough Creek the land slopes up to the Upland Meadow. Here there seems to be little shelter and the few trees that grow on the slopes offer little protection from the elements. A rocky outcrop is positioned within Horseclan's borders farther south but it lies extremely close to Sandclan's and Rainclan's borders, not ideal for allowing secrecy. However in the heart of Horseclan's territory a shallow dip in the ground disrupts the usual gradual upward climb in the landscape. Within this area the vegetation grows lush and thick. Sedgebrush and grasses stand in large swathes, encircling a clearing almost entirely with only a small gap in the undergrowth providing an entrance into the hidden hollow. Once past the vegetation, the clearing is made up of rocky ground covered in wildflowers. A small lodgepole pine that has just escaped its time as a sapling grows almost in the middle of the clearing, sheltering the remains of a badger den between its roots. With plenty of space and decent protection, it is in this place that Horseclan will make its home. Cats of all ages can deposit and eat prey, share tongues, sun bathe, or simply share the news of the day in this sheltered spot. For countless moons to come this little dip will witness the ever changing lives of the cats of Horseclan as they continue to survive and thrive as they follow the Warrior Code. ~ The Shallow Dip, Lilywolf <br> <br>
