Synopses & Reviews
These handy, informative pocket-sized guides are an essential resource for the novice or experienced birder. The guides in this regional series focus on America's most popular birding hotspots.
Featuring 200 specimens each, the guides group birds by family rather than alphabetically, as approved by the American Ornithological Association. A quick-reference alphabetical guide on the inside cover provides an easy way to find a name quickly.
Each entry has a vivid photograph showing the bird in its native habitat. On the facing page, a list of bulleted points confirms at a glance the bird's identity. These field ID clues note the bird's size, color, beak and wing shape, markings, song, flight pattern, habitat, and hotspots in which to find them. Special field facts highlighted at the bottom of each entry give additional information about what to look for in the bird's behavior, and detailed maps show the range of each bird's habitat. With a comprehensive index including life list, these user-friendly guides will quickly become favorite companions on the track to lifelong birding.
National Geographic, publisher of the authoritative bestselling "Field Guide to the Birds of North America," introduces a series of affordable and portable regional bird field guides.
