    This book by the successful Eyewitness Books makes identifying birds on the backyard fence, those birds sitting on the wire over your recently-washed car, birds in the woods and jungles easy to identify. The highly graphical lay-out and the simply written text welcomes the reader to the world of the feathered flyers that live in every climate on earth. Even though this volume is not as comprehensive and inclusive as the books by the Audubon Society or the Peterson guides, it contains outstanding pictures of more than 800 species. The entire range of bird families is presented in an easy-to-read format with fabulous closeup pictures of each bird. Just enough information is presented. An especially cunning feature shows an outline of each bird next to an outline of the book to convey a sense of size. Sections in the front of the book introduce the reader to the anatomy of birds, techniques for watching birds in the garden or woods, identifying flight patterns, and much more.If you are a causal bird-watcher of any age or merely like to look at birds from your cozy arm chair in from of the fire, you must have this book in your personal library.

    This is an awesome book.Very well detailed in so many ways-a couple things I really like about this book is that it tells where the bird originates from and if its an aquatic,aerial bird and so forth.My only complaint is that I woudve loved for this book to be a bit bigger-Its about the size of a standard bible.Im very happy I purchased this book & recommend it to any bird lover.

    Good guide to over 800 species of birds in the world, however I think it could have been expanded even further. A good guide for it's price

    This is a good bird book for novices. I purchased three bird books and this is my second favorite. I will use it for backyard birding.

    These books are so helpful to use as references for painting.Very clear photograhy. I would have liked a few close-up shots for some of the images perhaps, but otherwise a great book. Recommended.
