The birds are covered one per page.There is a large color photograph,a written description,song description,behavior details,breeding information,nesting details,as well as length,wingspan,flight pattern,nest identification ,scientific family and species names.plumage,habitat,migrationweight,range maps,scale sihouettes, information to show differences with similar species.The book also has a 37 page introduction on how to use the book and what birding is all about.
This book will serve many purposes;but mainly as a use at home resource.It is much too heavy to tote around while birding,but certainly packed with much mote material.An excellent book to have 'on the shelf'for a serious or otherwise interest in birds.
For someone starting and wanting a bird book to take with them in the field ,go with; Peterson,Kaufman,Golden,American Bird Conservancy's field Guide,National Geographic,Sibley's or such.
