It is 4.5x6 inches in size, and easy to carry in a pack or in the leg pocket of a pair of cargo pants.
The sections for each bird on behavior, voice, and similar species are concise and very specific. Of greatest interest to me are the paragraphs on seasonal occurrence, questions about which often make me pause while trying to recall.
The photo images are remarkably clear. I might only wish for more images, especially of immature forms. The occasional picture of similar species on the same page is very welcome. It is an easy volume to use with a short index on the inside back cover, and is especially helpful in showing a species to newer birders, who may have only gotten a glimpse of a rapidly disappearing warbler.
As a frequent birding field trip leader in San Diego County, this will be the guide that I will now most often carry and recommend for this area. Thanks to the authors.
I would recommend it as long as you don't own any previous volumes of this book, for the "new" version" hasn't really changed much from the old one except for a new cover.
as far as what an actual bird would look like. Information is also handy...especially for the bird watching crowd.
You can imagine my disappointment when it arrived today and the only photos are the picture of a bird on the cover and the photo of the two authors on the back of the book.
Apparently the hardcover and paperback are totally different books.
