This is a great book for those who want a bit more information on birds in Georgia. Illustrations include male and female, morph stages. Each species provides information with basic species description, ID, size, resident status (common, uncommon, rare), habitat, nesting, feeding, voice, similar species and best Georgia birding sites. A color coded map provides range with resident status. Dual index is by scientific and common names.

I have a good collection of birding books and find Birds of Georgia so far to have a more complete listing of species. I've not been using it long but so far have not found anything I am looking for not listed. Some of the information may be a bit dated - i.e. Evening Grosbeaks are listed as regular migrants, rare to casual - and I have not seen one sine the late 90's, but I'd rather have the Evening Grosbeak listed than not.

If you only purchase one Georgia bird guide, in my opinion this one is the best. If you are like me and have a reference library of bird books, you'll still find yourself pulling Birds of Georgia out first when looking for information on a bird you just saw.

We are bird and nature photographers who basically use this book on a daily basis. It is our "go to" book to identify birds in Georgia. It is very well-researched and easy-to-read, including beautiful artistic illustrations. This is the first book I would recommend for learning about birds in Georgia. It illustrates the bird's description according to male or female (such as size, colors, wing markings). Also included with each bird description is their preferred habitat, feeding preferences and the sound of their calls or songs. The authors have also included where you are most likely to see the bird in Georgia. In addition, the book is easily divided into the classifications of Passerine and Non-Passerine. The book's outside cover is made of a material that won't tear easily. It's a very well-done book, and one that should be in the library of every bird lover in Georgia! No matter how many bird books that we buy, we always keep this one close at hand.

Birds of Georgia This is a great book for residents of Georgia wishing to learn about their back yard feathered friends. I was impressed as were those i showed this book to. Great information and pictures of both male and female genders. Buy this book!

I purchased this book as a gift for my 11 year old "hot-shot" birding nephew who lives in Geogia. He was wanting a book that only had the birds he is most likely to see in Georgia. Now I haven't gotten the thank you note yet from him.... he's too busy birding I suppose.... but as a birder myself who owns dozens of birding books (one can NEVER have too many bird books) I looked at it myself before wrapping and mailing it. I thought it a very impressive book. Pictures and text excellent. Just wish North Carolina had such a book.

This is an outstanding bird book for those of us who live in Georgia. It is well written and filled with glorious pictures of each bird. I highly recommend it.

Not comprehensive, but an excellent casual birder's guide. It is more appropriate as a chairside companion when sitting on "the back porch."

Great book. I'm still learning how to quickly reference sightings. Gave one to another novice bird watcher. Great info too.
