This book is a wonderful resource for people who want to know where to go to find birds in North Carolina. It is detailed and thorough. It might be a bit intimidating for newcommers to birding but shouldn't be. It is a wonderful companion to a field guide for anyone lining or visiting in NC. A prior review by Chuck Riddle rated it low because it had no pictures. The reviewer apparently was expecting a field guide and unfortunatly rated the book based on his mistaken expectations.

Anybody that's at all serious about birding the fabulous NC coast needs this book. This will help focus efforts on the most productive, most reliable spots and will make figuring out where to go along the NC coast into a fun and rewarding experience. Fussell knows the NC coast like few others, and he shares that knowledge in fine detail, including very specific driving directions to some little known hotspots. Fussell tells not only where to bird, but when to bird and for what specific species. This book has not only helped increase my life list, but it's helped me really explore some of the places along the coast that are somewhat away from the maddening crowds and off the beaten path.

I've recently become interested in bird watching but don't know the first thing about birds. I thought this would be a great book to get my hobby started since the description states that its good for both beginner and experienced birders. The book is very thick and includes a lot of great information on WHERE to find birds, but not a single photo and does not help with identifying birds. I suppose a field guide would have been more suitable for me. Oh well, its still a nice product.
