The New Birder's Guide to Birds of North America
by Bill Thompson III




Overview -
"I love this book. It is fun to read, beautifully laid out, and accompanied by exquisite illustrations. The sections called 'Wow' and 'Remember' on each page will elicit 'I never knew that ' from many readers. This is a winner for the new birder from four to one hundred and four."
--Jane Alexander, actress and former board member of the American Birding Association What a new birder needs is a field guide that shows most of the birds he or she is going to see but doesn't overwhelm with rarities unlikely to be seen. This is that book. Covering 300 of the most common birds in the United States and Canada, this guide has just the right amount of information about how to identify birds, where and when to look for them, what they sound like, and how they behave. The New Birder's Guide includes easy-to-understand descriptions and maps, clear photos, drawings of common and interesting behaviors, and fun "Wow " facts for each bird, plus expert advice on identification basics, how to get started, and how to improve your birding skills.
