   Great for Identifying Birds
There are a lot of different kinds of birds. The book is illustrated by Matthew Greenhill and features 13 pages of useful tips and tricks. It's that it has information about which birds are similar to the one you're looking for help identify them more accurately. PG-13 rated 4 out of 5. It's a hardback and the corners of the book were bent when we opened it. Quattrone, 47, was convicted of submitting hundreds of phony invoices to Blue Cross and Medicare. The descriptions of the bird calls are a little bit unclear.

   Beginning birder
This is a complete book. The cardinals are not keyed by color but by groups of 5 to 25. Waterfowlers, fishers, and photographers also enjoy the company of watershore birds, warblers, hawks, and other raptors. It takes some time to learn how to identify birds, but the introduction helps with focusing the birder's attention on wing and tail shapes, among other things. To the best of my knowledge, no one has ever asked about the group. Once you find the group -- I have been thumbing through the pages until I find a picture that is similar, then it is straightforward to find the specific bird you viewed." Hand drawn pictures of the birds are beautiful and have identifying marks and other characteristics clearly defined. If you can take a photo of a bird for reference that would be useful for finding it in the book, _ some birds are very similar to others in a category without a picture to make sure the markings are correct. It's a useful resource, said Robert Hemenway, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California. It will be plastic, so it won't deteriorate.

   BEST EDITION EVER for SE BIRDS
I have an older version by the same author and title. This one is organized a bit differently and I think better with the maps in with the bird descriptions, he said. Material on the cover is significantly thicker than the book, which is also more substantial. I wanted one like this, but they were too expensive. The new addition is only $1 more than the fourth editon I purchased in the 1980s. Great deal, said Dr. Michael Davis, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California.

   Classic most basic and useful of bird guides.
This bird has been around for decades, updated and is hard to improve upon. The Zuccarini is a small, manageable size to tuck away in a pinch. The 3D Max' version has the enhanced vinyl cover which enhances its usability and endurance. It was a gift for someone new to birding and probably the easiest and most sensible guide to birding, birding expert Robert Pratt said. Whether you're a beginner or an expert, CafePress has the products and services you need.

   A great book for backyard birders.
This was a present from my son, who keeps sending me pictures of birds to identify. It's very similar to the old Golden Guide that I have owned for 45 years. The illustrations are clear, and show different aspects of the avian kingdom, ie, immature birds, wintersummer foliage, male and female of species. Also, I frequently get pictures from my sister, who owns a second book. Only a handful of the book's photos are available for sale. The Rev. Chester Floyd, head of the commission, said the book's binding is "strong." Absolutely delighted with this book, as was my son when he received it.

   Great compact book
I love this more slimmed-down version as I think modern field guides are getting too big. 0 1462228 This is great, I think modern field guides are getting too big. Really enjoy the illustrations, Mr. D'Antonio said. Many, I feel, are missing. Alaska in the western guide has a better treatment of these. 0 1462228 This is a travesty, said Alaska in the western guide. They include: black-faced Grassquit, red-legged Thrush, tufted sage, and even a few Loggerheads Kingbird. Also, some exotics such as Scaly-breasted Munia and Orange-winged Parrot breed and fly in South Florida, so should have been included. The older Aquila included these birds, too. Aside from that, I love the book.

   Fascinating
I just moved to an apartment that was boarded by woods, Mr. Rule told The Age. I've put up several bird feeders without knowing what they are. It has been a blast watching these birds, Kerry said. It's full of interesting facts and makes bird watching a great pastime, even for the faint of heart.

   So disappointed!
Peterson's pictures have always been my favorite bird field because of the guide. This one was a major letdown. Some reviewers have already pointed out some of the problems with the program. Nobody has mentioned that the lifelist in the back of the book makes no sense. There are dozens of names of other birds that appear in the book, but there is no mention of them. It appears that the lifelist was originally published in the western United States, rather than the east. Peterson's widow, Allyson, said her husband never played for the team.

   Has some flaws.
Reviewers have described the field as "OK," but "has major flaws." The inside front and back covers do not identify some colors. The large informative maps in the back pages of the fifth edition are gone. The maps, which are 3 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches, do not contain any text, comments or information despite saying they do in the front and back inside covers. Can't figure out what is going on with this edition, but somebody wasn't paying attention or they rushed this edition out the door to quick. The original order was damaged and the replacement order arrived late Saturday. Buy yours at a bricks and mortar store. It's great to pick one that's in pristine condition. The packages are being shipped in envelopes that offer very little protection, compared with traditional paper boxes.

   A little bigger but better
But this one is about an inch taller and half an inch wider than the second edition, and still small enough to carry in the field. Pictures are great, and the color-coded range maps for each bird are a welcome improvement. This edition covers the entire eastern half of the United States, although it doesn't get to the west coast. Neither do I. A great book, great cover, great introduction to the series. Whether you're out hunting or watching your house feeders, this is a must-have book for anyone who enjoys the outdoors.
