Comments about National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of Eastern North America:
I have several bird books but this book is always my first choice. Birds are easier to identify with this book because it is well organized and the color pictures and identifying marks are right on target. The information about each bird is also interesting.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
