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

We set up a bird feeder this spring so we could learn about the birds in our area This guide has been extremely helpful in identifying all the different birds that have come and visited us! Easy to use you flip the book open to the bird's major color (black white blue brown etc) and start looking The pictures are very good quality The birds in each color are arranged from smallest to largest It includes small tidbits of information about each one It really is very easy to use We've been able to identify all the birds we've seen (over 15 different kinds) so far though sometimes it's been a little bit of a guessing game because the bird flew off while we were still looking :-) I find that it's easiest to look for something that really stands out about the bird (such as streaks on the chest a colorful head etc) and its primary color and search based on that The book also mentions if any other bird looks similar so you can compare them for correct identification It's really handy and we're very much enjoying our bird studies I highly recommend it It is very much worth purchasing if you want to get started watching birds
