I have this wonderful little book, and it has stimulated my bird watching immensly. The birds are seperated by color, so if you see a black bird, go to the black section. I recommend this book highly for children, beginners, the just curious. It is small, but the pictures will help alot. Love this book!!! Buy it I think it is worth every penny

Many of Florida’s most interesting or unusual birds are missing from this book. Whooping cranes, Limpkin, Red cockaded woodpeckers, all of special interest and missing.
Aracaras and Snail Kites are also missing. This is a potboiler.

I have used a copy of Birds of Michigan for several years. I’ll be in Orlando and Jacksonville this year and so got this for my trip. Many birds that occur in Florida are, no doubt, not included butwith several hundred documented species, it would be impossible to make a pocket guide like this with every potentially present bird.

My ONLY complaint about this series is that some birds are hard to find because they have several dominant colors and you might have to look in two or three sections to find it. But that’s easier than scanning through 200-300 pages in my Peterson guide.

Mr. Stan Tekiela has established a reputation for his series of bird watching field guides. What’s most unique about his approach is the fact he divides the guide by feather coloration rather than by species or groups of species. The sound recordings are of great quality and a must to have with the field guide. I highly recommend this book for those individuals who, like me, are just barely beginning to get their feet wet in this fantastic hobby of bird watching.

Sure, it lacks a bit of detail that I would like about the birds. Sure some of the pictures do not seem to be that clear but shesh, this is field guide. This is small enough to carry with you and the color coding is awesome! If you are new to birding, like me, then get the book.

You can always buy books that have every little detail about the bird. Use those books to study the bird before you go out. This is for when you are out and go “What bird was that?”. It was almost all brown… so go to the brown section.

I now have two of his books. Will get more as I go to that state.
