The book and CD are both awesome! This was one of my "textbooks" for my nature study class. The bird calls are great, if a little disorganized, and the guide is excellent as well. Read full review

I love this book, but I have been watching what I believe to be a type of Loon on Grand Traverse Bay for about 30 years. Stan has not identified this bird in this book. This bird has some features of the Common loon, but the adult has a tuft on the back of his head and he swims under water.
