Excellent photos, and life history. However, I can't recommend it as the only bird identification book for ones library. ( )

I have thumbed through my copy of this one until the pages (at least the color ones) are falling out. Overall, a great guide, but sometimes good drawings would actually make it easier to positively identify the bird in question than the photographs this book provides. ( )

It's not the best, but I don't know of a better one for the price. We keep 2 copies at home & use it fairly often. The pictures are pretty good & sometimes contain second pictures where season or sex changes the look of a bird - not always, though. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679428526, Vinyl Bound)

Covering 508 bird species found east of the Rocky Mountains, the revised second edition takes into account changes in taxonomy and uses improved photography. At the heart of the guide is a set of 646 well-made color photographs whose subjects are organized by easily discerned characteristics (e.g., "chicken-like marsh birds," such as the clapper rail; "gull-like birds," such as the kittiwake; and "upright-perching water birds," such as the common murre). The photographs are then keyed to textual descriptions of the birds' appearance, range and habitat, nesting characteristics, and behavior. Easy to use and handsomely produced, this belongs in every eastern birdwatcher's collection. --Gregory McNamee

A simple and enjoyable book to aid in the identification of eastern species of birds.
