Alice Chalmers on
By far the most complete and easiest to navigate in bird books I have seen/read. The updates/revisions aren't major really, but essentially this book is a very good field guide and it has helped me to identify many birds, on bird watches or just in my garden. Any birdwatcher or nature enthusiast should own this.
Laura Mascaro on
A wonderful book!

I bought his for my 8 year old daughter as she loves to identify birds in our neighborhood.
Easy enough for a kid to navigate but also really great to sit and browse through.

I'm not really into bird watching, but this book seems to have everything you need to identify birds you would come across in your travels.

I've had several bird ID books, but this has always been my favourite. So glad to have bought the updated version. Thanks so much to the authors for this great Bird ID book!
