About the Author
Norman Arlott is one of the world's leading bird artists. His books include "Birds of the West Indies" and the two-volume "Birds of Europe, Russia, China, and Japan" (all Princeton).

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.

Compared to other comprehensive field guides, this has all the birds, less text, and is in a smaller format. In other words: perfect for travel, which is why we bought it.Published on May 6, 2014 by Stephanie S.
It is exactly what it says and is informative and as a novice birdwatcher does a more than an adequate job for researching the local species as I come across them.Published on February 23, 2012 by Kenneth J.
