Excellent field guide - 04/05/2014

by Melissa from Denver, CO

We have been using this field guide for over 3 years and in that time have tried many others for casual browsing and field identification - we just keep going back to this one for its excellent ID help, call descriptions, and photos. It's heavy to carry in the field, but is worth it if exploring a new region. Otherwise it's great to have on the shelf for reference.
