Your Favorite Field Guide?
Bill of the Birds about the various field guides to the birds that we bird watchers use.
Here are a few questions that I really want to ask (and I hope you'll be willing to answer):
1. How many field guides do you own?
2. What is your favorite field guide and why?
3. Do you prefer field guides illustrated with photographs or with artwork/paintings?
4. Do you always take a field guide with you when you go birding?
5. Do you find yourself using one guide in the field but referring to a different guide at home?
6. Do you think printed (book format) field guides will ever be replaced by digital devices (such as the Handheld Birds PDA that features the National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds.)?
Please use the comment function here to post your answers.
I'll be interested to see what y'all have to say.
