Roger Tory Peterson…great ornithologist, great conservationist, great artist. This book was everything I expected, and it’s nice to know that the publishers took the trouble to update some of the late Mr. Peterson’s information.

I live in the Midwest and am a rank amateur as far as bird watching is concerned. Luckily, Chicago is on a flyway, and a lot of migrants funnel down to our lake shore during fall migration. We also have great variety in habitat. So having a book that gives a thorough treatment of all species I will see in the vicinity is great. It’s also detailed enough that, as I get better at identifying birds, some of the more nuanced field marks will come in handy.

The book is kind of big–I had to choose between the entire North America guide and the Eastern North America guide. I got the more inclusive book because I want to have something to refer to when I travel West. But because of the weight/size (and frankly, because it is such a beautiful book) I will probably not drag it into the field with me. I have other guides I can use and write notes in, so this will be my at-home go-to reference if there’s an unusual (to my eyes) wing bar or color morph.
