I also appreciate the organization. The bottom of the pages are color coded for groups of birds as well as a "Quick Index" on the inside front cover.
The red lettered words within the text makes it much easier to find what you are looking for quickly.
My only complaint is the size of the distributions maps is too small, but I understand the necessity with the emphasis on quality pictures.
The size is nice for the field and should fit in most vest pockets.
The accompanying song bird CD is nice, but not really necessary as there are many ways to obtain quality CD's elsewhere.
This book is a good addition to any birders field guide collection and I plan to refer to it often.
