Good, But Incomplete Provides a good description of the birds it covers, but does not include many birds that are part-time visitors from Mexico.For example, in southeastern Arizona, we have 13 species of hummingbirds visit every year. The book lists four.The Hooded Oriole is common in southeastern Arizona, but is not found in the book.

Missing some fairly common species but useful with other guides I live in Phoenix (central AZ). I’ve just gotten beyond the totally novice birdwatcher and found that this book does not cover some of the species I see quite frequently such as the ash-throated and brown-crested flycatchers, great egret and bushtit (as well as the hummingbirds mentioned in another post – rufous and allens being two I have seen). It’s also missing some less common birds I see in my local area: canvasback, blue-grey gnatcatcher, eared grebe. However, I do use the book in combination with other guides such as the SIbley Guide to Birds (best reference) and the Petersen Field Guide “Western Birds”.

Stay away from Stan Tekiela!!!!!!!!!! If you travel and you want a good field guide for a local area or state that you will be visiting AVOID these field guides. They are written for people under the age of 10. The species are all found in major cities in virtually every US state and you will not be able to locate ANY of the birds that you were hoping to find.This man provides exhaustive and extensive descriptions of mourning doves for every state that he writes a book, but if you want to find out about flycatchers or hummingbirds in Arizona, FORGET IT!!!!!!!!!!!I once purchased one of these field guides before a trip to Florida. It was the biggest waste of time, money and effort. Avoid these books at all costs.
