Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The publication, in 2000 and 2001, of the huge and hugely acclaimed Sibley Guide to Birds and Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behavior gave birders encyclopedic sources of information about all the avian species they might see in North America.

Now David Allen Sibley has prepared two guides specifically designed for use in the field — and eminently portable. Each has essential information and thousands of illustrations culled from the first two books, plus many entirely new illustrations and newly drawn maps.

In each guide:

  • Complete coverage: 550 Eastern species, 650 Western
  • More than 4,000 Sibley paintings, with at least six views of each species
  • Clear and detailed bird descriptions, augmented with information on habitat and behavior (absent from most field guides)
  • All-new maps vetted by 90 experts who provided the most up-to-date and accurate range information ever available in a field guide

Range: Each volume covers a larger area — especially along the dividing line between Eastern and Western regions — than any other guide.

Review:

"Sibley soars to excellence yet again." Library Journal

Synopsis:

  • More than 4,000 full-color paintings in each volume.
  • Clear and detailed descriptions of all known species (550 Eastern, 650 Western).
  • All-new maps with the most up-to-date range information available anywhere.
  • Portable size, durable flexible binding

Synopsis:

The Sibley Guide to Birds has quickly become the new standard of excellence in bird identification guides, covering more than 810 North American birds in amazing detail. Now comes a new portable guide from David Sibley that every birder will want to carry into the field. Compact and comprehensive, this new guide features 703 bird species plus regional populations found west of the Rocky Mountains. Accounts include stunningly accurate illustrations — more than 4,600 in total — with descriptive caption text pointing out the most important field marks.

Each entry contains new text concerning frequency, nesting, behavior, food and feeding, voice description, and key identification features. Accounts also include brand-new maps created from information contributed by 110 regional experts across the continent.

The Sibley Field Guide to Birds of Western North America is an indispensable resource for all birders seeking an authoritative and portable guide to the birds of the West.
