    Love this book!

    It can be used by anyone but even an expert would find it more than useful! Gorgeous photos and illustrations! I love the region guide / range map in the corner of each page. I have already used it twice and Spring is just getting here. The book helps you with the identification process for each bird too. Highly recommend!

    Excellent Bird Book

    By on

    This is a full size book, measuring in at 9.5x6x1...inches. It is beautifully illustrated, we loved the paintings of all of the birds. It's great how the author did multiple paintings for each type of bird to show the many wing positions that you might see when they are flying and also how the feathers look at different life phases. The descriptions of each breed of bird are very descriptive and easy to understand. He includes a map at the bottom of the page that shows where the birds live, however it would be nice if the birds were categorized based on regions so it might be easier to find one if you were wanting to know what kind of bird you had in your yard.

However, the birds are listed by their groups, such as Eagles, Grouse, Owls, Warblers, even Wading Birds, etc. So, if you have an idea of what type of bird it is, you can find that group in the index and locate them that way. We are very impressed with this book, and we have seen many bird books. This one is very nice, the quality is excellent with heavy paper and secure bindings, lovely pictures and we liked the descriptions. He does a great job of sounding out and writing words for the bird songs and calls, about the Common Loon, Sibley writes, "Voice: Low, melancholy yodeling or wailing cries" This is very accurate I grew up on a lake in Maine where we had many melancholy loons. Overall, great book! … more
