As an avid Pennsylvania birder, but also an environmental educator, this is a field guide I will use in teaching the many students I work with each year, while at the same time, one I'll be recommending to fellow avid birders!
The book is easy to use, offers vivid written species accounts, and excellent tips on where to find birds throughout the great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
George Armistead's fantastically descriptive text provided in the species accounts are engaging, but more importantly, memorable, for those who are learning. Since I've received the book, I've been reading excerpts to a youth birding group I've been working with, and the kids are riveted by Mr. Armistead's narratives of even the most common resident birds. This book leaves a lasting impression on the reader, and lays the foundation for understanding and learning birds!
Each species account is accompanied by excellent photographic examples of that species. Choosing photographs to represent a species most effectively, so as to show structure, field marks, and expression of a bird, is tough. But the author has nailed it, in the selection of images to illustrate his descriptions.
And while I already use this book for teaching young Pennsylvanians about the fantastic bird life in Penn's Woods, I recommend it to birders that will be visiting Pennsylvania who want to learn how and where to find specific birds, as well as avid PA birders, who will undoubtedly find lots of valuable tips within.
One huge extra-bonus is that the book is incredibly portable, unlike many other field guides, so it's not a book you will leave at home when you go birding!
This is most definitely a "must have" book for birders of all skill levels, inside Pennsylvania, and out!
