"Birders worldwide will eagerly welcome this comprehensive and all-inclusive new field guide from Donald and Lillian Stokes. Brimming with 3400 stunning photographs illustrating 854 species, this is unequivocally the most spectacular compendium of North American bird identification photographs ever assembled between two covers. ...this monumental volume offers birders the most up-to-date information on field identification of North American birds currently available. ...[it] significantly resets the bar for North America field guides."

Ordered this to replace / update from my old 1983 National Geographic Edition of the same name. Wow, what a difference 30 years makes & going from drawings to photos is fantastic! I have the New Western Edition coming too & I hope that will be as impressive as this book. Haven't listened to the CD yet, but I'll bet it is of great quality too.

Donald and Lillian stokes have outdone themselves with this book. They are a true asset to the bird watching population. Whether a veteran or novice, this field manual is second to none I have seen. The photography is beyond reproach as the images almost leap off the pages. The included CD or 150 bird songs is just another demonstration of the Stokeses commitment and obvious love of birding to put out such a great product. Kudos to you both.
