Manufacturer Description

The successful photographic guidebook-- a birding bible for more than four million enthusiasts.Virtually every bird discovered in

western North America is brought to life in this portable guide, a vital companion in the field and a staple in any birdwatcher's library. It includes a resilient vinyl binding and fantastic full-color photographic recognition pictures scheduled quick access and conclusive text, consisting of information on the bird's voice, nesting practices, habitat, range, and interesting behaviors. Accompanying range maps; overhead flight silhouettes; sections on bird-watching, unexpected species, and threatened birds make the National Audubon Society's Field Guide to North American Birds the most thorough offered. Keep in mind: the Eastern Edition normally covers states east of the Rocky Mountains, while the Western

Edition covers the Rocky Mountain range and all the states to the west of it.A favorite of birdwatchers(especially those who prefer pictures to illustrations), this guidebook, revised for 2000, accounts for the 544 bird species that live in the region west of the Great Plains. The plainly printed color pictures catch birds at rest and in flight; preceded by black-and-white silhouettes, the plates are arranged by visually based, instinctive classifications--" hawk-like birds," "pigeon-like birds," and"setting down birds,"for instance-- that make on-the-fly recognition a fairly basic matter. The images are matched by plainly written text that describes a given bird, offers an approximation of its voice, and information its habitat, range, nests, and habits. Sized to fit in a jacket or backpack pocket, this is a valuable companion for any birding outing in the region.-- Gregory McNamee
