If birding is more to you than simply pinning a name to a bird, this is the book you'll turn to. The Kaufman Field Guide to Advanced Birding
is nothing short of Kenn Kaufman's wisdom and teaching skills crystallized into 448 insight-packed pages. Not only will you love this book, you'll learn from it. -- Pete Dunne
Yes, it entails some dedicated reading, instead of just trying to match up pictures -- but any birder who invests time reading Advanced Birding is going to reap enormous benefits in the field. -- Scott Weidensaul
I think this is one of the most important bird books of our generation.
A worthy sequel, to be sure, to Kenn's 1990 classic by the same name. I stand in awe. -- Ted Floyd, Editor, Birding
Anyone, from beginner to expert, wanting to improve upon their bird identification skills should study the Kaufman Field Guide to Advanced Birding
Being able to learn from Kaufman is a pleasure and an opportunity that shouldn't be passed up.
-- Grant McCreary, The Birder's Library
There is no one out there, no matter how grizzled a veteran, who won't learn something from this book. And beginners and intermediate birders should not let the title scare them off, either: ... [Advanced Birding] is for every birder who wants to identify, understand, and enjoy more of the birds she encounters.
