    Comments about National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of Western North America:

    I identified a black throated sparrow immediately when it skipped aroung my yard the other day. The book is laid out to be easily read and goes to the point. I understand other birdbooks are much more heavily detailed but they seem to be written for specialists in ornithology not the general reader looking for advice on their garden friends. I am going to get a copy for the local library to add to their current reference works for the use of the general library user.

      Comments about National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of Western North America:

      The book, we know, is an excellent birding guide, and has been part of our reference library for years. This copy was a gift for my brother and his wife who have never owned a bird reference guide.
