The bestselling photographic field guide--a birding bible for more than four million enthusiasts.

Virtually every bird found in western North America is brought to life in this portable guide, an essential companion in the field and a staple in any birdwatcher's library. It features a durable vinyl binding and brilliant full-color photographic identification pictures arranged for quick access and definitive text, including information on the bird's voice, nesting habits, habitat, range, and interesting behaviors. Accompanying range maps; overhead flight silhouettes; sections on bird-watching, accidental species, and endangered birds make the National Audubon Society's Field Guide to North American Birds the most comprehensive available. 

Note: the Eastern Edition generally covers states east of the Rocky Mountains, while the Western Edition covers the Rocky Mountain range and all the states to the west of it.

Book News
An exciting development for birders: the revised edition of this truly classic field guide (first, 1977) presents 544 Western species with 676 clear, high-quality photographs which are much more accurate than those in the 1977 edition. Also different: the descriptive portion of the text is arranged by species rather than by habitat. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
