Review

Reviews of the "National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America, Sixth Edition: " "Wow! ... a 10% increase in illustrations, plates now sprinkled with text to point out key features, updated range maps, comprehensive subspecies maps, and other useful new features. This classic guide just keeps evolving and improving. This is "the" guide you want with your field gear." -J. V. Remsen, Distinguished Professor and Curator of Birds, Museum of Natural Science, Louisiana State University "Jon Dunn's masterful field knowledge of North America's birds and Jonathan Alderfer's unparalleled artistic ability and direction shine throughout this up-to-date overhaul of a classic guide. Birders at all levels of experience benefit from a guide that is both comprehensive and accurate, and "National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America" is exactly what they need." -Kimball L. Garrett, Ornithology Collections Manager, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County "The best birding field guide you can buy...National Geo 6 is now my default go-to guide. It is the design innovations that push this book to the front. You will not find a field guide that gives you better and faster access to the information it contains." "-Minneapolis Star Tribune blog" "Shelve all your other field guides for Dunn and Alderfer's brand-new sixth edition, which leaps beyond previous editions, as well as all competition...Study it at home. Carry it afield. It has no peer." -Daniel Gibson (birding expert), Amazon.com "This new, sixth edition is by far the best of this splendid guide's incarnations so far. [It]""is, simply put, the one book every North American birder needs to have on the shelf. Beginners will find it attractive, easy to use, and portable; intermediate and advanced birders will refer to it again and again with profit--and with surprise at how much it can teach even the most experienced among us." -The ABA Bloga

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy 6 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So waiting for more tests in the field but it looks like it is the best option for the occasional short-time business visitors in the various regions of the US, with 1-2 day private agenda for visiting the nearest birding spots. Collins-like size and general design, useful location info.
