Stokes Beginner's Guide to Birds is by far the best bird guide on the market. It is straightforwardly organized by plumage color with color tab indexes for quickly finding the bird at your feeder. The large-full color photographs of the male and female of each species makes identifying birds a breeze for even the novice. There are also tips on attracting birds to your feeders and attracting nesting to your area.

Publisher Comments:

Whether you want to identify the birds that come to your backyard feeder or you've decided to take up bird-watching as a hobby, Donald and Lillian Stokes have created the best beginner's guides to birds ever published.

From the easy-to-use color coding to the more than 130 gorgeous full-color photos, the Stokes guides are factually, visually, and organizationally superior to any other books you can buy. You'll find coverage of 100 species in each book — more than any other beginner's guide; organization by birds' plumage colors — a unique format that makes identification much easier for beginners; user-friendly color tab index for quick reference; color photographs of each species, including separate images of male and female when plumage differs; handy tips for purchasing binoculars and attracting birds to birdhouses, feeders, and gardens; and more specifics on each species than any other guide on the market, including information on voice, habitat, nest, eggs, incubation time, population trend, behavior, birdhouse and feeder preferences, and much more.

I had trouble with this guide. The plumage color organization somehow was not as helpful as I had envisioned it being. Perhaps it's because the little things move so quickly, and with the changing light their apparent plumage color changes - at least to me. However, It is probably one of the better beginners' guides out there. The others are so cumbersome in their organization that one finds the bird in the guide long after the one at the feeder has gone.
