5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves 10 stars!!! Sept. 26 2011
By volcanologist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is by far the best bird field guide book I've ever seen! In fact, I'm donating my other field guide books to the library as I only need this one.

I have always preferred actual photographs over drawings as you get a true depiction, but in other guidebooks that have photographs, they usually only offer one photograph per bird and it's usually a side shot, perched on a tree.

Then there is the guide books that have drawings in them. I've never liked these, as they don't show you how the bird really looks. However, these guides usually offer different shots of each bird (i.e. in flight, perched on the tree, etc).

This book is the best of both worlds! It has has 3-4 photographs of each bird, giving you a true look at what each bird actually looks like and showing you different angles (i.e. in flight, perched on a tree, etc). The photographs are amazing in this book! The shots are beautiful, clear and the colors stand out nicely (yet realistically...photos do not appear to be altered).

I'm a geologist but I love biology and ecology also. I spend a lot of time in the outdoors. I love to camp and hike. And I finally have the perfect bird field guide!

Got this for a family member that like us, loves to watch the birds. She has mentioned several times not knowing what type of birds she see's. She Love's this book and has already marked different birds that she has spotted right in her back yard. I liked looking at this new book so much that I might buy another one for myself even tho I have a nice but older one.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new fav guide, which has made me shelve all my others! July 23 2012
By jasperg55 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I picked this guide up at costco this year & as my title says, it quickly has replaced all my other guides for accuracy, ease of use, it's size- slightly taller than 8.5 inches x 5 inches wide, which I love; it's beautiful (multiple) photos of each species, which include: an in flight shot; adult perching, or standing; male/female; immature,or juvenile; breeding; & seasonal. The maps of occurrence (so far) seem spot on and the additional information on each page very helpful in identifying each variety. Additionally, a section at the bottom of each page, is reserved for notes/where/date seen. Also included on each page are similar species. I have had no trouble with the layouts, or, the way the different species are located in the book; in fact, finding a particular bird seems a good deal easier than in alot of my other books. While I will always use my other guides (Sibleys, Peterson, Audubon...), this one has been a winner for me & has proven itself time after time in the field. I spend alot of time outdoors with my work, so this guide goes with me everywhere (work & birding trips) & seems to be holding up excellently.

I ordered this book to replace one that I had that got damaged. My original copy came with a migration map and my book was crisp.

This book had no map obviously used. I am very disappointed in this.
