This book has wonderful photographs and good general information. It is an excellent resource for beginner birders. If you are beyond the beginner stage, this reference source is not going to be enough for you.

Very comprehensive book about the birds of Virginia. I am looking forward to using the book to learn how to make a suitable habitat to attract some birds to my backyard.

I found this very helpful in identifying the many birds we attracted to a number of bird feeders around our house near Richmond. I recommend it if you live in that area; we have since moved to Florida and bequeathed that volume to the new owners, so will be looking to buy the Florida edition soon!
