About the Author

Burton Guttman is a professor of biology who has been teaching birding workshops and courses for many years. His concern about society’s increasing alienation from the natural world — at a time when the earth needs our protection more than ever — motivated him to write a book that helps people get to know and love nature, so they will want to protect it.

This is an absolute must!! March 27 2013

Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
This book in conjunction with East and West Peterson Field Guides was the best $50.00 I have spent since becoming serious about this life style. I never really paid attention to the beginning of the guides, but do! Everything is there, and then the fleshing out information on the birds.
This trio used together, is amazing... Giving you field exercises... One day you may spend just looking at bills... No overwhelming at times, what bird is this, or which one is that... Looking, learning, training... I have learned so much just by this package of three books.
I have every bird book, literally, and I have only been birding since Jan 2013. It is a beautiful way to see all the beauty around you. Make a life list. Learn that list, and be in wonder and the little one that just happens to be sitting outside your window.

This book is easy to read and gives great explanations of the birds of the eastern US. It has wonderful color pictures and great diagrams. Is small enough to carry with you.

I really like this book. I bought several copies for a birding class. The only thing I don't like is that it also kind of requires the companion book Petersons field guides, which is understandable considering it is a Peterson book. But I use my Sibleys guide with it anyway.
Helps me to identify the birds in my backyard Aug. 21 2013

Is is very helpful if it is used along with Peterson's Field Guide to Birds of EAstern and Central North America.
