"Birds of New England" has been my field guide of choice ever since it came out a few years ago. It gives the reader a realistic picture of what birds he/she is likely to see here in New England, with lots of useful information and excellent range maps. One example - I have had a white-crowned sparrow come to my feeder each October for a few days as a migrant, but I saw one this past winter for the first time. When I checked "Birds of New England" I discovered that there is a small area encompassing some of southeastern Massachusetts and eastern Rhode Island where these sparrows actually winter over. I have given this book as a gift many times and would recommend it without hesitation whether you travel to bird, or like me, you have a pair of binoculars by your window at all times.

I have bought 10-18 bird books for my back yard bird watching. THIS IS THE BEST !! It gives you the correct photo and explanation. Even one when that type of bird should not be there !! And is !!! We really like this the best and am going to buy another because we can never find where I or my wife put it last . This is the bible for back yard bird watching.

A well-illustrated and organized book, with plastic-covered pages. Pictures show both the male and female examples of each species, with key notes regarding their habits and habitats. We keep this book on the window sill near the feeders and have identified 20+ birds we didn't realize were living in our southern NH woods.

I purchased this book so I would have a concise list of the birds in my backyard and surrounding states. I have the larger bird guide, but it is time-consuming to look through pages and pages of birds which may not be indigenous to New England. This guide gives each bird one page of detailed images and a little chart with the bird's range, as well as info on size, habitat, voice, feeding habits and more. The book is also small and light enough to keep by your side as you sip your morning coffee, binoculars in hand, enjoying the many feathered visitors to your feeders. Highly recommend!

I like this book very much. I have one and wanted my daughter and her children to enjoy one also. I like that it is just New England birds and I don't have to go through pages and pages of birds that I will never see.
