Easy to Identify Birds and Great for Bird Watching with Kids I stumbled on this book when I went to look at another bird field guide. I’m glad I compared guides before making a purchase. Needless to say I purchased this one over the one I intended to buy.

Good field guide, could use better organization This book is small enough for field work, yet contains a great deal of information. The full-color photographs have insets which show juvenile, seasonal, or sexually dimorphic plumage where appropriate, as well as showing some birds in action shots: a hawk soaring, a willet showing his colors, etc. The species information is concise, readable, and relevant, with color-coded range maps and bulleted information on size, weight, color, food, eggs/incubation/fledging, similar species, and migration information for hundreds of different species, all in a standard one-page per species format. The “Stan’s Notes” contain interesting specifics are not included in the bullet points.

A field and patio guide that you will actually use. This is the BEST “bird book” for use in California. I have used the Audobon books (very good) as well as other guides but by far for amateurs like myself this is the one.First off, quickly getting to the portion of the book is easy because things are color-coded. Second, the contents have pictures as opposed to drawings or worse small pictures with poor resolution. Third, the handy size of the book makes it practical to carry in one’s cargo pant pocket. Fourth, the birds shown are common to California so one has to do a lot less wading through pages to find what you are looking for. Fifth, not all California birds are shown – this is good and bad. The good being less useless material the bad being you do miss some specimens.All in all for the price this is a great value.
