Excerpt from Howard Youth's review in Bird Watcher's Digest:
"The latest edition of the most portable field guide to the United States and Canada's 960-plus recorded bird species...Flipping through, you feel that there's better cohesiveness and consistency...Overall, this is a remarkable book, an improvement of an already excellent tool for those seeking birds in the United States and Canada. To answer most of those bird identification riddles in those parts of North America, birders can do no better than to tuck this book, along with an eastern or western Sibley guide, in their cars, backpacks, or bike sacks."
So glad a new edition is out. Thank you for providing Christmas gifts.
