Audubon-- Birds May 29, 2008
I have an older Audubon bird book that I like better.Although the pictures are nice in this one,I like the layout better in the old one.
Love this book! Apr 8, 2008
Beautiful pictures combined with superb write ups on habitat and habits. We have used to identify many beautiful birds right in our own backyard. Makes a great gift for the bird watcher in your circle.
Second Opinion Feb 29, 2008
I purchased this as a gift for my recently retired father. As soon as it arrived I checked it out and wished I had bought it for myself. My meager field guide was no comparison! It contains beautiful photos and is so nicely cross referenced. A few days after I gave it to my dad, he called to thank me again and also raved about what a superior guide it is.
National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Birds Feb 13, 2008
Everything I could have hoped for. Great photos and information. Compact enough to put in my field bag. Easy to access, even with gloves on! A great book for a beginning bird watcher. "Audubon Society", that says it all. And, it was certainly priced right.
Field Guide - North American Birds Feb 8, 2008
Great book. My husband and I have this book that my parents gave us several years ago and we love it so we purchased one for our friends who live in Atlanta, GA and are just getting into birds and wanted to be able to identify the birds that visit their feeders.
