The culmination of many years of research, observation, and study, the new STOKES FIELD GUIDE includes more species, more photographs, and more useful identification information than any other photographic field guide.
The guide features 853 North American bird species and more than 3,400 stunning color photographs. And yet it’s portable enough to fit in your pocket!
The photographs cover all significant plumages, including male, female, summer, winter, immature, morphs, important subspecies, and birds in flight. Also included * the newest scientific and common names and phylogenetic order; * special help for identifying birds in flight through important clues of behavior, plumage, and shape; * detailed descriptions of songs and calls; * important behavioral information; * key habitat preferences of each species; and * the newest range maps, detailing species’ winter, summer, year-round ranges, and migration routes. * a special downloadable CD with more than 600 bird sounds (from Lang Elliott and Kevin Colver) and 150 photographs: the calls and songs of 150 common North American species.

A Masterpiece As one who has nearly two entire bookcases full of bird books, I believe it’s fair to say that I’m not easily impressed; however, the Stokeses have done what I did not think was possible: blow me away with a field guide to birds. What I love best about the new Stokes Field Guide is the photography, of which there is an exceptional amount (more than in any other field guide) that is, furthermore, of eye-poppingly outstanding quality. I’d call it a visual smorgasbord–particularly the section on warblers!

Wonderful Book with 1 concern Received this book and was mesmerized. Wonderful photos and descriptions. Being a bird nerd, I found that the book is too large and heavy (almost 3 pounds)for carrying in the field. I will keep it in my vehicle for an excellent reference source.
