I own several field guides, and Peterson's is the best. Roger Tory Peterson just happened to have invented birding ID for the masses, and all other field guides more or less follow his example.
Large, easy to see illustrations, distinguishing bird characteristics are pointed out for you. Multiple tips for ID: bird silhouettes, side view, flying view, motions, etc.
Heavy stock glossy paper, good quality printing.
On the down side, because this book covers all of North America it is pretty heavy to be carrying around with you. Best left at home.
Highly recommended. If you will have just one reference book, then this is a must have. Amazon delivered quickly and at a good price, a pleasure to shop here.

As a teenager I discovered Roger Tory Peterson's bird books,and found him to be an amazingly accurate illustrator.I am a grandmother now and an avid bird watcher. I found Peterson Field Guide to Birds of North America to be nothing less than one would expect of one of the best bird illustrators of the twentieth century. Cheryl Lyste

I like to do nature photography and I shoot a lot of birds. But they use to be just birds now I know what they are and know there habitat and what there called. having looked through the book a number of times I now look for new ones in my area.

Lots of information about birds in my area. Great illustrations and demonstrations of bird anatomy. It is a bit heavy however for a field guide.
