1.0 étoiles sur 5Poor field guide for the beginner19 juillet 2008
Par Paleobirder - Publié sur Amazon.com
I'm an avid birder with almost 20 years of experience in the field (mostly in the mid-Atlantic region), and I enjoy looking through various field guides (lots have been published since I began birding).
The one good feature about this book is that it contains a lot more text information than other guides: details on behavior, nesting, and population status. But both the photographs and selection of birds for the mid-Atlantic region were quite bad.
The photos are in the style later improved by Kenn Kauffman in his Focus Guide series, with images of birds removed from their background. But the images are often in poor lighting and in odd poses that would be misleading to anyone trying to identify a bird in the field. The Great Egret, an all white bird, is shown in flight in shadow so that the wings appear dark gray.
For a book covering the birds of the mid-Atlantic, they have included some species rarely seen in the area while relegating some seen more frequently to an appendix of rare and accidental birds. The Wilson's Phalarope, often seen in migration in the region, is listed as casual while the rarer Red and Red-necked Phalarope are given full space in the book.
The guide is misleading for beginners and more seasoned birders can find better guides to further improve their identification skills.

This was a presedent for one of my grandsons. He lives in NJ I live in SC. Don't see him to often but he did tell me over the phone that he got the book and he loves it.

Has great info on birds of mid-Atlantic including behavioral patterns, gender differences, diets, and clines of modifications. You will be happy with it.

Perhaps the birder with 20 years experience should produce their own field guide. I would be happy to review their effort.

Have enjoyed looking up the birds that land on my birdfeeder! The book is easy to use and I have been able to look up almost every bird that I have in my yard.
