Washington DC: National Geographic Society, 2007. Octavo, paperback, colour photographs, colour illustrations, maps.
For the beginning and intermediate birders, this guide is a comprehensive and authoritative, yet engaging and user-friendly guide that teaches readers how to get started in and improve their birding, what to look for, and how to make sense of what they see and hear in the field. The book's visual component includes spreads that show actual field guide pages and how to read them, spreads that compare the same bird in photography versus artwork and explain how to use both in your birding, and hundreds of colour photographs, illustrations, and maps.
