Reviews - What do customers think about National Audubon Society Pocket Guide to Familiar Birds: Western Region: Western?
Nice pictures, but not overly useful Oct 27, 2007
Too small to be very useful - one picture of each bird does not give enough points to accurately identify the species, at least for a novice. Limited entries, most birds in my backyard are not in the book.
Useful little book for bird identification Sep 21, 2006
This book features 80 of the more common birds that you'll find in North America. There is a nice color photo of every bird, as well as a map that shows where the bird lives.
The authors of the book also devoted a full paragraph to describing some interesting facts about each bird. There is also a detailed description of each bird's appearance, voice, and habitat. A written description of each bird's range helps supplement the maps.
This is a great book for beginning bird watchers, or anyone who enjoys the outdoors.
