The book has many birding sites throughout the state of North Carolina. My complaint is that the book does not contain maps of the sites. There are large maps with no detail. The birding sites are shown as a number on the map with no detail on how to get there. For that you must read through a paragraph of directions to multiple locations. It is almost impossible to use on the road. In order to use the book, you will need to research the sites on the internet and print a map. For reference, look at "Birding Georgia" by Giff Beaton (same publisher). This book has very good maps. Hopefully this book will add the maps in later editions.

Written by knowledgeable individuals who actually know the birds in NC and where to find them. Have learned of nearby sites (we live in NC) of which we were unaware, even though we are long-time bird watchers. Haven't yet used the guide to visit any of the sites listed, but directions to the sites near where we live are clear and easily understood, so anticipate directions to sites outside our area will be easy to follow as well.

This book was priceless in choosing birding destinations. We are experienced but not expert birders and our main focus of this trip was birding. We didn't have a set itinerary, so it was nice to see where we ended up at night, look in the book for very clear locations marked on the maps, and pick the next place to check out. This book combined with the North Carolina Birding Trail map online, and Ebird Hotspots made the trip very successful. What I loved was the very complete descriptions of the sites including habitat, birds likely to be seen and when, amenities, directions, nearby camping, and much more.

I got this book because I was going to be in No. Carolina for a week, and wanted to bird in and around Benson on route 95. I read the detailed write-ups for several areas and plotted my mornings. The "40 ...locations" are augmented in the book by several other nearby sites that are available. I liked all the places I went to based on the book. The one thing they could add would be some connectivity between all the sites listed in the book. The layout now makes you find each site/area separately. So when you're not from the area, it is very difficult to pick up the trail of the various locations.
This time I was in NC for business, but because of all the interesting sites I read of in the book, I intend to return for just some solid birding.

We're planning a trip to NC in the early summer, and wanted to know if there would be good birding in the locations we plan to visit. This book answers our questions and gives us all we need to enjoy our trip. The style is very easy and real-person-focused. I'm glad I bought this book and would recommend it to birding buddies.
