Excellent guide with one caveat this is an excellent guide which is easy to follow. My only complaint is that is not clear what order the birds are listed in – it is not alphabetical, or by color, but just seems random, which means you have to page through the entire book to try to find a bird. There must be some system but they do not say anywhere what the system is. I have looked in the “how to use this book” section and read the foreward etc, but it doesn’t seem to say anywhere.The maps are especially useful, about where and when the bird is found, and the photos are very clear.

Wonderful For Young Birders Of Any Age I’ve been reading field guides to birds for about fifty years. Bill Thompson’s “Young Birder’s Guide to Birds of North America” is, without question, the best I’ve seen for beginning birders. I’ve purchased one for my granddaughter and another for a family of young nieces. I’m quite sure that they are not the last.

Great first birder book! This a beautiful book! Gave it to my 10 year old grandson and he is enjoying it. Just enought information, but not too much. Each page has some interesting tidbit about the bird species. Quite complete, not childish. Great job!
