Category Description for Birds of _____ Field Guides:

If your family is more of the "backyard birdwatcher" type, and you tend to kind of squint at those little U.S. maps found in most field guides and try to figure whether the particular bird you think you're looking at is in the correct area, these guides are much better suited to your needs. Each guide features birds found in a particular state, and - get this - they're arranged by color, not association with other bird families. You shouldn't have to be an expert just to identify the bird! Each two-page spread features a full-color photo of the species on the left (and the other sex also, if they're substantially different), while the stats are laid out on the right, such as size, markings of the male, female, and juvenile, nest features, type of eggs, time of incubation, how long the fledgling phase lasts, migration patterns, and food. Last but not least the guide compares the species to other, similar species that you might be tempted to confuse the species with, along with other interesting facts on the lifestyle of that particular bird. A map of the state is also included, with counties sketched out, and the range of the bird highlighted. So, next time you're sitting by the window, staring at the birdfeeder and you see this red, black and white bird, don't run for that big fat field guide and thumb through it until the bird is long since gone trying to figure out what it was - reach for one of these and narrow down your search by about 50 times. - Jess

I have the CO version and I love how the species are organized by color, making it easier to actually figure out what the bird is when you are out on the trail or in your backyard.

We are going to study birds this year and we live in California. I thought this book would help us identify the many birds in our yard.

I love this book! This has got to be the best way to learn about birds that live in your area and to double up science and running errands! The great thing is that you don't have to know ANYTHING about birds (not even their names!) to get started Since the birds are grouped by the color of their plumage and there is a full-color photograph on each page even kids who aren't reading yet can find the picture of a bird they saw while you were out driving to the store earlier that day Then all on one page you have the bird's name interesting facts about it like diet nesting habits egg color and even an inset photo of the opposite gender if it's different from the one you looked up My four-year old still loves to tell her dad as we drive over the levee about all the birds that "love to live in the marshy waters" And I loved it when my two-year old proudly walked up to me pointing to an open page and saying "Look Mom I found the great egret!"
