An ideal local reference. . . fits snugly into one hand while you flip through the colour-coded pages. . . A few moment's orientation with the system and you are ready to track down anything in southwestern British Columbia with feathers. . . Highly recommended. —Catherine Dook, The Boat Journal

Love this book. Everybody in Southern British Columbia should have one. I can look in my back yard and easily recognize the birds at my feeder from the beautiful and clear photos in the book. Awesome addition to any home library or someone new to bird watching.

Great book for those of us who live in British Columbia Canada. May be too basic for hard core birders, however, just perfect for amateurs like us who enjoy watching the local birds.

Format: Paperback
This book has many bird pictures in it (no illustrations), and it has useful information for identifying the birds. It also has interesting facts and a line where you can write when and where you spotted that bird. I, however, had originally thought that the pictures would be more detailed, and that the book would be much bigger. In reality, it is quite small. Sometimes when something is too small, it is hard to fit enough information in it. This book is compact and easy to take with you while bird watching or something of that type. I, however, am not a bird watching type of person and would have rather had more detailed descriptions of the birds in a larger book.
