Respectable photo guide with nearly all rarities shown Basics: softcover, 2010, 430pp; small format (6×4 inches) photo guide shows all regularly occurring species plus most vagrants; 412 species shown in 600+ very good color photographs; shows plumages for male/female, breeding/non-breeding, local subspecies, and the multiple subspecies that routinely occur; one paragraph of text concisely points out field marks plus information on similar species, voice, status, habitat, and behavior.

So much information in such a compact guide First, a disclosure. I have birded with Mr. Taylor during several field trips and know him to be a veritable encyclopedia of the birds of SE Arizona. His knowledge of the birds and their preferred habitats shows through in this compact but very informative guide. Great color photos, including male/female and adult/juvenile images where needed, will help all but the most experienced birders use this guide in the field. The compact size makes this easy to carry along. What I particularly like are the linear charts that indicate generally when and where a species is likely to be seen. The “Noteworthy” comments are worth paying attention to. This is not a guide to specific locations; use this in conjunction with Mr. Taylor’s Birder’s Guide to Southeastern Arizona.
