The Sibley guides are my current favorite for North American birds; I've been using this guide in the field. ( )

I grew up relying on the Peterson Guide to Western Books but there are limitations. When I came back to birding last year, I heard this book recommended and wow. It's wonderful! There are definitely birds I am better able to identify with this book than with the Peterson. I like that the maps are on the same page as the information. There are more views of each bird. It's fantastic! ( )
