Product Description

Review

" Part of the Pocket Naturalist series from Waterford Press, this laminated field guide is lightweight in size, but not information." - AAA New Mexico Journey Magazine " There are dozens of these stunningly illustrated pocket guides to nature. They easily fit in a shirt pocket with space left for note paper and pen. While you won't want to discard your bulky bird, flower, tree, etc. books, these are ideal casual identification guides. In addition to the illustrations, there is enough descriptive material on each species to key in on and then follow- up when it is convenient to scour the books for greater details and confirmation. If we ran a store that catered to outdoor enthusiasts, we' d sure have some of these in the rack." - "Shep, Bookshelf" " Nature lovers may want to look into an expanding series of pocket guides form Waterford Press. The Pocket naturalist series has something for everyone's backyard. The laminated foldouts feature p to 150 items per guide on topics such as urban wildlife, backyard, birds, pond life, the night sky, and wildflowers. There are also regional, state and city guides for even more specific information. Each water-and-dirt-resistant guide sells for $5.95." - "Garden Ideas and Outdoor Living"

On a trip to Costa Rica this year, the booklet was invaluable. It doesn't give information about each bird but the colours and illustrations are very true. With its help, I was able to spot at least two thirds of the birds pictured- INCLUDING the Resplendent Quetzal.

A great, easy to carry guide. Would recommend if you are travelling light and cannot take a bulky field guide. Perfect for slipping into a backpack pocket!

Great little fold-out guide for a quick lookup while in Costa Rica. Laminated and pocket size with an impressive coverage of birds. Just what I was looking for over lugging around a book.

We took this pamphlet and the sister product "Costa Rica Wildlife" on our trip to Costa Rica & it was well worth having along (this one more than the wildlife one). It weighs next to nothing & is well laminated so it lived for a fortnight in my backpack, to be pulled out as the occasion required. It's not for the serious bird spotter, but for people like me that just want to identify most of the colourful birds that we saw it's great - I managed to identify about 80% of the birds that we saw using it.

Excellent durable plasticised pamphlet which is perfect for use when out & about on tours.
Enables easy identification of birds as you see them & also perfect for identification of the birds you photographed when back at home as you put them into albums.

Excellent product and very useful up in the rain forests when a book with all its paper pages would just get damp! Ideal for walking and trekking, informative without being excessive,
