Format: Hardcover
I have had this book since the 1980 edition. It is a very comprehensive work with beautiful pictures. You need to know which family a bird is in to look it up. In other words to read about an American Robin you look under thrushes. In the descriptions of each bird, it goes into depth describing characteristics, feeding habits, nest, eggs, incubation, other names, albinism and range. It defines all terms related to birds. All are alphabetically listed. I have rated it a 4 instead of a 5 because of my edition's binding. The glue does not hold up well and sections of the book have separated from the binding. This happened quite soon after I bought my first copy and I had it replaced. The same happened to the replacement. I still recommend book this as it's material is so worth while. Just handle it with care.

This is the most detailed and descriptive book we have found with in depth illustration and content about all phases of a birds life and its habitat. It is a very large and heavy volume and has beautiful photographs. For bird classification it could be a bit difficult to find a given bird without having knowledge about which classification the bird belongs. Very well written and edited. Great for an advanced student with an awesome presentation of its subject.

This is a book full of information and pictures of the birds of North America. It is not just for identification, but also teaches about the anatomy of the birds and their eggs. It is a huge used book that cost $0.01 plus shipping. A very good buy helping me with artwork that I am engaged in.

The information, sketches and photos in this book make it the definitive source for anyone interested in birds.
The info is comprehensive and educational, the photos are exquisite and it serves as a gold standard for everything
a resource book should be.

This is a great reference book. The pictures are gorgeous, and many of the entires have lots of detail. The section explaining bird flight and the different types of wings that enable different styles was very enlightening!

I did not find it terribly hard to find things in this book. Organization is by Family, but you can easily get that information from Wikipedia with just about any bird you can think of. Tracking down the referenced sources for more detail is tricky though.

This book packs a LOT of information in a (relatively) small package.
