    1. About myself: I've been birding for all of three months, not really taking walks for the purpose of birding or making IDs until this past Christmas Bird Count. So I imagine I fall right in the target demographic for this work. My impression of the several times I've built a stack of several guides to look at something I've seen is that the Sibley Guide and its Eastern and Western children compete with the National Geographic Field Guide for the top/experienced birder and comparisons between one [...]


    2. Accessible, easy-to-use beginning/intermediate bird book. We keep ours close to the windows which overlook our feeders. Includes maps of the species' migratory ranges and good identification tips.


    3. Excellent field guide for beginners and intermediate birders. The image plates have a handy highlight pointing to the identifying element for each bird, to help with confident IDs in the field.


    4. Among the dozen or so guides I have, this is the one that I take with me in the field. The book is well-organized and the photos are digitally-enhanced. I feel like I'm able to do faster lookups with this book and it seems like just the right weight and size for carrying.


    5. I am a total bird-nerd, and if you only own one bird field guide (and yes, I recognize that most people have no reason to even own one) this is the one to get. Many field guides are strictly photo images, and for many species, it can be incredibly difficult to get a photo representative of the way the bird actually looks. Others have only drawings, which can emphasize identifying marks, but seldom look enough like the actual bird to be of much use. This book takes real photos and digitally enhan [...]


    6. I really love the setup of this book. There's information on distribution, migration patterns, time-of-year to expect to see each bird in your region (via a distribution map for each species), and a description of the call. Images consist of a photo (or two) of each species, with arrowheads pointing to relevant characters, and a bit of tweaking to emphasize salient features (e.g maybe brightening up a yellow cheek patch)


    7. This field guide is great because the pictures actually look like the birds you're trying to spot! It has retouched digital images instead of drawings. Every time I look up a bird I find it quickly and don't have doubts about what it is. It's also great to have both Eastern and Western birds in one compact guide.


    8. One can never have enough birding field guide, IMHO. The uniqueness of this guide is that it combines enhanced photographic images (instead of drawings) with "Peterson's arrows" noting the key identification features.


    9. Hands down, this is the best field guide for birds I've been able to find. The digitally-enhanced photos make it so much easier to compare birds in the field to birds in the guide. The organization and descriptions are superb, too.


    10. Great birding guide for beginners and pros alike. The compiled photos that fill the book are all excellent examples of birds as they appear in the field. This is the first guide I recommend to anyone who asks me for bird guide advice.


    11. This is very descriptive, and really handy to have if you are an avid bird watcher. It has all real pictures, and plenty of info about the diffarent kinds of birds.







    12. This book is my constant companion when hiking or traveling. It is so easy to find new birds and the descriptions are always spot on.


    13. This is my favorite. Colorful glossy photosough, little on the heavy side! Love how it has pictures of seasonal and maturity plumage!



    14. This one is even easier to use than my National Geographic guide, with photos instead of illustrations. Bought this on our roadtrip to CO and it was very handy!!



    15. The first guide (I think) to use digitally-edited photos of birds. I actually never use this one in the field, but it's interesting to compare the photos with what I've seen later on.



    16. Easy to follow. Well organized. The pictures are actual photos that have been enhanced with a computer. Great for beginning birders like myself.
