Virtually each and every bird found in eastern North The united states is dropped at life in this portable guide, an essential companion in the field and a staple in any birdwatcher’s library. It features a durable vinyl binding and brilliant full-color photographic identification pictures arranged for quick get entry to and definitive text, including information at the bird’s voice, nesting habits, habitat, range, and interesting behaviors. Accompanying range maps; overhead flight silhouettes; sections on bird-watching, accidental species, and endangered birds make the National Audubon Society’s Field Guide to North American Birds the most comprehensive to be had.
Note: the Eastern Edition normally covers states east of the Rocky Mountains, at the same time as the Western Edition covers the Rocky Mountain range and all of the states to the west of it.
Covering 508 bird species found east of the Rocky Mountains, the revised second edition takes into account changes in taxonomy and uses improved photography. On the heart of the guide is a set of 646 well-made color photographs whose subjects are organized by easily discerned characteristics (e.g., “chicken-like marsh birds,” such as the clapper rail; “gull-like birds,” such as the kittiwake; and “upright-perching water birds,” such as the common murre). The photographs are then keyed to textual descriptions of the birds’ appearance, range and habitat, nesting characteristics, and behavior. Easy to use and handsomely produced, this belongs in each and every eastern birdwatcher’s collection. –Gregory McNamee
