This field guide is a nice size that's easy to carry around, has multiple drawn pictures of each bird as well as a short text and range map for each - The text generally starts out with saying if the bird is common or not and then goes into where they nest, winter etc. It talks about the typical foods, if they're solitary or not. One thing I like too is that it often tells if the bird is native or non-native to the US which I find particularly interesting. Voice/song is also discussed in the text. Excellent reference book. I keep one in the house and one in the car. Highly recommended!

I started birdwatching a year and a half ago and the Sibley Guide to Birds was the first guide I purchased. Although I had been told it was for "expert" birders, I just thought the illustrations were much clearer than any other guide. It was a joy to look at, at home on my couch. But I never wanted to take it with me in the field because it's too darn heavy.
So the Sibley FIELD Guide is the exactly the guide I've been wishing for. The illustrations are just as clear, even though they've been scaled down, and the format is a managable size and weight. The original guide had many variations, by region, sex, age, etc., and I think they had to drop a few of these, but at my level of birdwatching I don't miss them. The guide DOES still show male and female, first year, etc. I took this guide with me to Prospect Park, Brooklyn, last weekend, and I saw and ID'ed 45 species. Not bad for an amateur!
Expert birders will already be familiar with Sibley and can make up their own minds, so I would like to say to beginning birdwatchers, give this guide a shot. I really think the illustrations are the best and most helpful.

An excellent book for the serious birder. It provides most of the information one could wish for and does it in a reasonably compact form, that seems quite durable. Better than most other birding books on the market.

I love the Sibley guides. The one criticism that I have heard and will agree with is that some of the drawings are a bit "dull" in comparison to other guides. Having said that, this has never deterred from my ability to identify a bird in the field. I both watch and study birds and absolutely adore these guides. Everyone who I've spoken to agrees that these books are excellent. Probably the best feature to me is how each species is depicted in flight as well as percing. Arrows highlight key features to look for. Juvelniles and females depicted. Other unique characteristics noted or depicted (e.g. diagnostic flight patterns or other movements). Wonderful! (Western edition too).

Great book. Buy it. Best range maps in any North America birding field guide out there.

CAD$29.95 list price is very, very old. Published versions of this title lowered the list price to CAD$22.95 in 2007.

US$19.95 list price. We're paying $18-$20 for a $20 title and being told it is discounted +30%.

I use this guide with others to give me a good rounding of birds and their behaviour. Multiple bird photos per page make pinpointing the correct bird is a great feature.

Great field guide to birds. Light weight and small in size but full of great info. Easy to carry around in the field. Ever since I bought it, I always have it in my backpack to use for quick reference. As a beginner birder I find it really handy. Another excellent book I use is The Crossley ID Guide: Eastern Birds.

This book has helped me find out what kinds of birds are around my house. If you ever want to be a birder this is a good book to get started with.
