Must have Florida bird book Feb 28, 2008
Birds of Florida This is not the first book you will pick up to ID a bird. The illustrations in Peterson's or Sibley's are better. This book is about the birds we see every day in Florida. The written text is excellent giving you the what when where and how of the bird. It will guide you if you are searching for a new bird or just want to know everything about the bird. For instance if you see a Black Skimmer lying on the beach and looking dead it is actually roosting. This is a bird that lays its head down to sleep. The text is very easy reading and interesting and you want to just sit down and read it from cover to cover.
Birds of Florida May 14, 2007
A well illustrated book but not as complete as Peterson's Birds of Eastern and Central North America. Would make an interesting addition as a reference book but would not recommend it as one's only book on Florida birds.
