From the Back Cover
[BACK JACKET]PETERSON FIELD GUIDES I love this book. It is fun to read, beautifully laid out, and accompanied by exquisite illustrations. The sections called Wow and Remember on each page will elicit 'I never knew that!' from many readers. This is a winner for the new birder from four to one hundred and four. Jane Alexander, actress and former board member of the American Birding AssociationWhat a new birder needs is a field guide that shows most of the birds he or she is going to see but doesn t overwhelm with rarities unlikely to be seen. This is that book. Covering 300 of the most common birds in the United States and Canada, this guide has just the right amount of information about how to identify birds, where and when to look for them, what they sound like, and how they behave. The New Birder s Guide includes easy-to-understand descriptions and maps, clear photos, drawings of common and interesting behaviors, and fun Wow! facts for each bird, plus expert advice on identification basics, how to get started, and how to improve your birding skills.[au photo: the one in the green Columbia jacket]BILL THOMPSON III is the editor and copublisher of Bird Watcher s Digest, and the author of The Young Birder s Guide to Birds of North America, along with many other books.

The introductory sections are delightful: informative, witty, and succinct. The photo showing the Parts of a Birdwatcher is a classic.
We will add this book to the list of three that we recommend for new birders. As Bill Thompson's guide instructs: if you can't find a bird that looks like the one you saw in your guide, check another guide. Good advice and a good addition to the world of bird guides.
