By Sarah J. Frick on June 7, 2009
this is an excellent source for finding birds in Maine. It has it all!!! It's quite compact without skimping on any information. (it's nice and thick without being big or heavy, in other words) and it has full page pictures, region information, habit and behavior information, pictures of males and females, all really organized extremely well. My one and only complaint is that it arrived quite late (it was supposed to be for a birthday present...)--but it was worth the wait overall. (Plus I don't know (nor really care) who's fault is that it was late...) it's here now and it's delivered 101% satisfaction to the reciever.

I'm new to birding. When I decided to put up a simple bird feeder outside my studio this Maine Winter, I found myself becoming so intrigued by the diverse number of visiting birds to the site, what started as a small feeder quickly grew into a small, but, major construction project. However, my new and improved feeding station, with multiple feeding sites, was definitely worth the effort to build. I now enjoy great "theatre" watching my local wildlife feed outside my window, consisting of several species of birds, squirrels and chipmunks. It was then I realized--what are these critters?--I'd like to know more about them!

The Birds of Maine Field Guide has become an absolutely perfect fit for my needs as a beginning birder. It's so handy, easily kept on my desk--its small size, 4"x5 1/2," fits perfectly in my small hands. Don't know what you're looking at? -- but, need to know quickly which bird it is before it flies away? The author made this book so easy to use. Just note the bird's major color and quickly find it in the appropriate color section, smaller birds generally pictured first. However, if you do know the bird's name, you can also find it in the book's rear index. If males/females differ in color, the author also includes photo insets of the other gender. The photographs of each bird show excellent detail--their ranges are also included as a general guideline. Photos of birds are shown on the left pages with their corresponding information on the right (i.e., size, food choices, vocalization, male/female characteristics, migration, etc.). The author features 119 species of the known 415 birds found in Maine--for this guidebook, he decided to include only the most common birds found in our state.

I absolutely love this new hobby.

We bought this as a Father's Day gift for my hubby. He loves taking beautiful photography, but he often was frustrated in trying to find out the names of the birds. This has great info, terrific photos, and is exactly what he wanted!

I LOVE this book! As a disabled person, I have been able to spend time on new hobbies & my new favorite has been feeding the local birds. There is much to learn about birds, it is not just putting out birdseed.
Each page of "Birds of Maine Field Guide" by Stan Tekiela informs the reader about the size of each bird; sexes & the differences between males, females, & juveniles; nesting habits; eggs laid (inc. the number of eggs, special markings on eggs) which parent incubates the eggs, it is often a shared duty, (There are birds who attempt to lay one or more of their eggs in with another birds' eggs!; how long the parents feed their little fledglings & whether feeding the young is a one bird parent deal or done in unity; migration habits, IMPORTANT: IF YOU BEGIN FEEDING BIRDS IT IS IMPORTANT TO CONTINUE TO FEED THROUGH THE ENTIRE YEAR!!! Birds who may otherwise MIGRATE may not do so, as they have been feeding on the food provided through your feeders (THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT SELF-ENTERTAINMENT); there are notations about food preferrences (the local feed & seed store is also a great source of info in getting the correct feed); birds are grouped by a color-coded grouping, (not alphabetized which is worthless if you do not know the name of a bird in the beginning) Having provided the color coding so one can easily find another bird with similar coloring & smile as one checks the little boxes in the index. Stan's personal notes about the birds are truly helpful. All of the information above may sound over-whelming, but it is exactly the opposite! This is an exciting hobby that they entire family can enjoy, gain knowledge, & begin to identify certain birds who continually come to the feeders.

LOVE this book. Very small 4-1/2" x 6"--easy to transport in backpack or bag. Corners of pages are color-coded by the color of the bird, making it really QUICK to find your bird. Lovely full color, glossy pictures, full-page and half-page pix. This truly is a great value.

Our daughter fell in love with this book at her Montessori preschool. We ordered it for her and she has looked through it so much that the pages are curled. The pages are fully colored and each page provides a fairly lengthy description of each bird.

As the title states, this spectacular bird guide is relevant to the specific geography of Maine. The borders of the pages are organized by the bird's coloration which allows for speedy identification. Birds of Maine is lavishly illustrated and each bird has a thorough physical description along with "Stan's Notes" which points out interesting traits and habits of the bird.

There are a number of state specific bird guides by the author which should prove to be of great value to residents of those states. We have purchased many copies of this guide as gifts which are always well received.
