I think this book is a great book for birders. It helped me learn birds by where I was (habitat), where in the past I had no real way of having core knowledge to build on for what birds I would see based on what type of habitat I was in (I’m not an expert birder). I’ve never seen another field guide done this way and I think it’s a great way to catagorize birds.
Really interesting bird guide. I liked the narratives, nice change from the norm we usually see in field guides. Was educational about habitat and I don’t recall seeing that in another bird guide. Glad I picked it up. I would recommend this to any birder’s library.
