Field Guide to the Birds of North America
Buy from:   or
National Geographic
In this field guide are undoubtedly some of the best illustrations in any American birdbook that I have ever seen. Seeing as I have already been to America and seen some of their birds, I was relieved to find that when I bought this, the illustrations were an exact, concise representation of the bird. The maps, which show the state borders as well as the distribution of the birds, are logically colour-coded and easy to understand.

David Sibleys new field guide to the birds of North America renders all the existing guides obsolete at one stroke. The book itself is beautifully produced and crafted - the sort of book that gives pleasure just in the handling of it.
