About 1,780 species of birds representing 97 families live and breed on the continent of North America. Any interested person can find birds to observe and study, even in our urban centers. No one has seen allof the North American avian species. Filled with full color photos.
Excellent book for the beginning birder. Descriptions of each one. Pictures in groups of similiar birds (with sizes noted) so that you can compare.
My 1986 edition has a blue cover with a circle containing three songbirds. Definitely my take-along book for trips.
