Review: National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America

User Review  - Goodreads

This is the field guide that I began birding with and I still use it today, in companion with my Stokes Guide. It's absolutely fantastic. It's well organized, well illustrated, and well written. I could not recommend this book more highly to anyone interested in learning about birds. Read full review
