    1. A guidebook certainly to find its lofty place within my other treasures My good friend in Florida remarked yesterday, Birds offer free entertainment , and I could not agree A little late in life for me to find a new interest in identifying birds, but owning a cabin in northern Michigan and a small house near the Indian River estuary here in Melbourne provides ample opportunities for a budding familiarity Filled with detailed information and illustrations, this book should offer years of delight [...]


    2. If you don t want to pack around the big comprehensive Sibley with you on your outdoor jaunts, then having the western and eastern guides is the way to go These are excellent field guides and hold up pretty well over the years.






    3. Hands down this is the field guide I use in the actual field Species are arranged in groups located based of or less overall relatedness, but within groups arrangement keeps in mind what is likely to be confused for what else.Each species has a blurb that typically gives this info How common it is where you are likely to see it is it likely to be alone or with other Diet physical description or behaviors of note voice, as well as normal stuff like range maps and measurements.There are also seve [...]


    4. I did a side by side comparison of this, the Peterson field guide, and the Audubon field guide, and I liked this one the best The illustrations are clear and, for the birds I knew, seemed to capture the spirit of the bird in an easy to identify way Important features and field marks are pointed out in the illustrations There are pages with helpful comparisons for similar or easily confused birds, like hawks and warblers It s compact and densely packed with useful information The Peterson guide i [...]


    5. This is my take with bird book One of the things I really like about it is that each group of birds has a overview page which shows smaller pictures of all the birds It makes it very easy to compare sizes and prominent features so you can rule out some birds without having to flip through the book quite as much Of course, Sibley s art is quite good, expressive without being distracting Like most bird books, he creates a sort of mean or average picture of the bird Recognized sub species are given [...]


    6. Nice size for a big back pocket Illustrations are extremely detailed I m new to birding and found it fairly easy to identify birds within groups using the summaries at the beginning of each group and the accompanying seasonal maps I also had fun checking birds off in the checklist index in the back And, I ran into some real birdwatchers in the Everglades and they complimented me on this book So there.


    7. This is the bird book I use most often I agree with the previous reviewer that its main flaw is that it s very liberal in its interpretation of Eastern and I often have to wade through several birds I have almost zero chance of seeing here to compare the similar ones that I am likely to see However, overall the book is an excellent guide, and the one I am most likely to give as a gift to friends who want a good guide for identifying birds while hiking etc.


    8. This is the field guide to beat most of my other field guides I like it so much, and if I m checking around through the bird books, this one is near the top of the pile if not on the top For handy, the Golden Guide is likely to go in my pack, but this one has such great illustrations and excellent information It s a must have for me.


    9. I love the Peterson guides, but I tend to use Sibley s just a bit than Peterson s Eastern Birds The main difference I prefer here is that the range maps are on each page alongside the bird descriptions and the drawings are very clear and detailed.


    10. This reference was recommended to me by an Audubon Society friend who knows I m new to the east coast and was without the tools Lovely, beautiful renderings, understated, nicely produced and to the point Best book of 2012 so far, I d say Oh, you don t FINISH a book like this.


    11. Sibley is indispensable This is my everyday field guide while birding in the Eastern U.S My only complaint is that the binding did not hold up very well But that can be said for most books published these days.


    12. I grew up on the Peterson guide and The Golden Guide to Birds, and I have those books also But David Sibley s book is SO comprehensive, informative, and wonderful that I had to buy this one, also If you are at all interested in birds, I think this book is a Must Own.


    13. As I always say, photos are better than drawings however, this series is so beautifully drawn and well notated that one doesn t need actual photos.Pair it with this site birdsrnell and you have an excellent resource set for any level of enthusiast.


    14. As someone who has recently become a birdwatcher, and loves to acquire books, I ve got a couple OK, than a couple other field guides But this is my favorite and the one that I carry with my bins The illustrations are just amazing.


    15. This is a fine bird guide that you will refer to for years to come It s compact enough to carry with you outdoors, but comprehensive enough to keep on your bookshelf Very nice illustrations accompany the entries.



    16. Always my go to book for bird ID The different seasonal plumage illustrations as especially helpful for shorebirds and seabirds.




    17. One of the best field guides I ve tried The introductory material is hugely helpful and the illustrations and descriptions are well done Highly recommended for beginning birdwatchers



    18. I finally have this long coveted field guide It was a Christmas gift from my sister I m going to be good at spotting birds now I will I will


    19. Easy to use birding book with really nicely detailed illustrations of the birds that makes them easier to identify.




    20. I would have preferred that the book have color photographs as opposed to drawings but over all it is a good field guide I like that the guide also shows what the bird looks like in flight.
