Just got my copy two days ago and as an ornithologist I can already tell that this book will pay dividends when conducting field work. The colour photographs are excellent and well thought out by consistently showing the right wing and each feather in order. Additional photos of breast and contour feathers are also very helpful, especially where it is likely that they can be distinguished. Measurements are provided and representative of the specimen, not geographic variants that would overly complicate this style of book. However, it would have been great if the location of the specimen was noted for those who are interest.

This field guide is the first of its kind in this niche of ornithology and is meant for the beginner to advanced field researcher. Whether you find a puff of feathers left over from a predators meal, or a mystery bird was pulverized by a wind turbine, this book will help you figure out what species it was.

This book is so useful that it is already slightly dog-eared! My husband is a bird carver, and this book is a valuable addition to his reference material. The photos are detailed enough to get good information for his painting techniques. Well worth the price.

Yhis is an excellant book for someone to identify feathers.
Sadly it is more than I was hoping for.
Some feathers are so similar that it is difficult to indentify for a beginner
Now then, if a photo of the bird shown sitting and in flight, that would be more useful for me
