A guidebook certainly to find its lofty place within my other treasures. My good friend in Florida remarked yesterday, "Birds offer free entertainment", and I could not agree more. A little late in life for me to find a new interest in identifying birds, but owning a cabin in northern Michigan and a small house near the Indian River estuary here in Melbourne provides ample opportunities for a budding familiarity. Filled with detailed information and illustrations, this book should offer years of delight and even wonder, I suppose. ( )

Just bought this -- over the Peterson, based upon reviews by the experienced. I like it so far, but note that it includes birds of the Southwest, including some "limited" to Texas and Mexico, which I don't understand.

Quality publication. ( )

This is the book I go back to over and over again to identify birds. The drawings show birds in profile, with additional drawings of birds in flight when the species warrants such drawings (hawks, eagles, etc.).

I have used several field guides for birds and have found this one to be the most detailed and with the best illustrations. If someone wanted a recommendation on a bird field guide this would be the one.
