Beyond that, what is particularly appealing to me about this book are the illustrations. These are, arguably, the best bird paintings I've seen in any field guide; better than RTP and much better than Sibley. I would love to have these paintings in a larger format (book, posters, etc.)
All-in-all, a great pocket guide and well worth the price.
A couple of quibbles. Arlott should have at least shown the mid-sized terns in flight, along with the common nighthawk; this should have been fairly easy to do without much violation to his image/space harmony. And a good editor should have caught the error that states the length of the bald eagle is 37 cm; of course its nearly two and a half times greater.
I found the complementary text and geographic range thumbnails just so, all linked to provide a lapidary, highly aesthetic, very savory experience.
