This is the best field guide I've ever seen, for any state, region or country. Birds are grouped by color, making it easy for the novice birder. Includes large color photograph of every bird with separate pictures to differentiate females and juveniles. In addition to basic information, interesting behaviorial tidbits are included for each species. I could not be happier with this book.

Thorough, Easy To Use, Compact -- Perfect for Everyone! Aug. 3 2004
By Eliot B. Muir - Published on Amazon.com
While I've used a number of more general wildlife guides, both in the Northwest U.S., and in travels around the world, I've never used one focused solely on birding. Thus, my short review must be taken with a grain of salt. However, I am repeatedly amazed at how fast I find a bird that's suddenly come within view. Further, I've yet to come across a bird in Oregon that I haven't been able to find in this book. AND The book is small enough to lug along on short backpacking trips -- as long as you're not also lugging a load of novels that must be read while sitting alone, next to a Cascadian mountain lake, of course.

Best Field Guide book! May 7 2006
By Joyce E. Heatherington - Published on Amazon.com
I like this book because it is simple and easy to use. Because it is color coded by birds. Its great for the beginner birder. Plus it let's you check off the birds you have seen in the back of the book. I would definatly recommend this book to any beginner birder as their first book of purchase!

Easy Bird Reference Book Aug. 1 2005
By Denise Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Unlike some other field guides, this book is simple to use, has a great summary of each bird, and a handy checklist at the back where you can track the variety of birds you've seen. There have been a couple of birds I've seen in Oregon that weren't listed (i.e., Northern Pygmy Owl) but for the most part, this is a very comprehensive guide for the novice, or experienced birder. Recommend for young people as well to introduce them to the hobby!

Nice little book, does its job Oct. 11 2006

I was soo addicted to my old Peterson guide, and I bought this for my Mom, who loves the format. After using it a few times, I like it better. Its a good little, usable field guide. Now we keep three bird books in a basket with two sets of glasses everytime we sit out in the yard. Mom grabs this one first, then I wrestle it away from her. Pity summers ending.

wish I could buy a copy of his birds of Willamette valley on amazon.
