This book covers 170 of the most common species likely to be seen in Hawaii and the photos are excellent for making identifications. For someone new to birding or only vaguely interested this book should suffice. However if you're an avid birdwatcher you may find this frustrating as it has many very common species in -some native to many countries of the world such as mallard, heron, coot, pheasant etc and therefore like me you may feel a little cheated as I don't need a book to identify those. What would have been useful instead were male, female and baby pictures and perhaps aerial shots of the seabirds as very often they're seen in silhouette or from above/below. Divided into five main habitats - urban, country, forest, wetland and seabird, it also includes where to bird and a handy species distribution chart at the back , indicating the islands they inhabit. Bigger and better than the pocket guide by H Douglas Pratt.

As a casual bird watcher this is just what I need. The photographs are taken by a variety of amateur photographers but you can tell clearly which bird it is and there is info. on where the species can be found and how common or rare sightings are. Just what I wanted and expected. Well worth the cost.

Great photos but some we got better shots of ourselves. Good book for identifying them though. A good purchase all the same.
