One of the best of its size I've seen. The pictures are really acurate.
The book contains hundreds of full color close up pictures of the different birds found in the western part of the country. These are cross referenced with a detailed summary of each birds description, nesting habits, range, etc. We found this to be the best 'pocket sized' reference book of its type.
Color photos field guide, an excellent addition to any birders library.
Photographs of over 500 birds, not illustration, is the nice thing about this book. Each photo is shown with a page number, which is the last half of the book which shows description, habitat, nesting procedures, voice and their range. Very nice book. Has vinyl covers so one can use it in the field for verification. I would call it a field edition. About 2/3 the size of a paperback, it is easy to carry.
Great condition, beautiful photos and tons of information.
I like this book., It really is informative.
