        Comments about National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America, 6th Edition:

        A wonderful book, but it's a struggle to read the tiny print. Reading it would not be easy for quick reference in the field for many people. Other National Geographic publications would be more relaxing eading at home. Please consider a version that uses larger print!!! This book is definitely worthy of more than one version -- so much hard work went into its creation! Bird lovers will love it (if they can read it).
