Editorial Reviews

Review

"Why lug your tattered one-pound Guide to the Birds of North America when you'll only be in Knoxville during an overnight stopover between flights? Still, that's time enough to identify the hooded warbler with its distinctive black bonnet, the blue grosbeak and the all-red summer tanager with your handy Pocket Naturalist's Guide to Tennessee Birds. This (guide) and others slip nicely into your purse or breast pocket, supplementing the more complete birding guides."
--Editor's Pick, Body & Soul Magazine

"Pocket Naturalist Guides are to nature-loving backpackers what CliffsNotes are to teens trying to navigate Shakespeare: essential. Lightweight and water- and dirt- (resistant), each 22-by-81/2-inch guide folds down to slip easily into a water bottle pocket and sells for $5.95. Color illustrations and short descriptions help you quickly identify birds, flowers, trees, and a variety of other creatures. The ultra-frugal backpacker can use the general guides, such as "Pond Life", "Animal Tracks", and "Weather" throughout North America, while the more inquisitive can purchase regional, state, and park guides."
--Backpacker Magazine December

"I have reviewed the Speakeasy (Pocket Traveler) series, and want to congratulate you on a wonderful product. I am very impressed with the easy-to-use format and compact size. At a quick glance anyone would be able to quickly ascertain the benefits of using the product while traveling abroad, especially when the traveler doesn't speak the native language."
--BD, California

I bought this pamphlet (it's not a book but a fold-out laminated sheet) as well as the Princeton Birds of the West Indies Guide for taking on a cruise to the Caribbean. My plan was to carry this in my backpack during the day in case I see a bird and want to look it up, and to leave the Princeton guide in the cabin. In the end though I ended up using just the Princeton guide, even though I took this pamphlet with me in the field, and here's why: it turns out most of the birds in the Caribbean each appear only on certain islands, or sometimes just on a single island, and the species from different islands can look very similar. So unless you're very good at distinguishing similar birds by their looks, you really need a book that tells you the range of the birds. It also helps to know how common the birds are, which the Princeton guide also tells you; that way if you saw a dozen of a bird during a stroll through a town and you think it's a species that's listed as very rare in the book, you'll know you need to double-check your hypothesis. I'm very much a beginner at bird identification, but with the Princeton information about the range I could usually figure out which of several similar bird species I saw, because usually only one of them was both common and found on the island we were visiting. I'd say save your money and get the Princeton book instead of this pamphlet.

I thought this guide was very helpful,well done, and inexpensive. It is fully laminated, and folded such that it is easily carried in your pocket into the field for "birding". I can't imagine anyone would be unhappy with this purchase for the price. mg

This is a great lamininated card to take with you outside. I thought I was ordering a book, but it's more like a book jacket. When you open it up, there are pictures with bird names. No full descriptions or pages. In the picture, it looks like a book, so beware, it's just a folded card.
