5 stars for beginning birders This book and all the other “Birds of (state)” guides by Stan Tekiela seem to bring out the worst in experienced birders. While I am a beginner at birding, this dislike of Tekiela’s guides is somewhat understandable. To experienced birders, a bird guide in which the birds are listed by color, not taxonomy, is bordering on criminal. Many of those birders seem to have forgotten that they were once novices and likely confused sparrows with wrens or finches. 

Midwest Book Review says:

Featuring the recorded sounds of 110 of Wisconsin’s birds Now in an expanded second edition, Birds Of Wisconsin: Field Guide by naturalist and wildlife photographer Stan Tekiela is significantly enhanced with updated photos, information, and range maps. This easy-to-use guide is specialized and restricted to 111 common species focused upon Wisconsin birds and Wisconsin range maps. Superbly organized by a color coding approach (see a yellow bird, then go to the yellow section to find out what it is), especially helpful in trying to distinguish between similar appearing birds, hallmarked with gorgeous bird photography, and laced with Wisconsin aviary tidbits and facts, Birds Of Wisconsin: Field Guide is a compact, shirt pocket size for easy portability and designed for use in conjunction with the also highly recommended Birds of Wisconsin Audio CDs (1591930391, $14.95) featuring the recorded sounds of 110 of Wisconsin’s most commonly encountered birds.

Serves it’s purpose The book introduces about 100 most common birds in Wisconsin. I am an European ornitologist, and this book would be very handy when visiting Wisconsin (or neighboring states) for a first time -you know what to expect.Of course you need also a good field guide.For a normal person living in Wisconsin this could be a good choice for the first field guide when starting the bird hobby.
