Summary

With all-new range maps, updated text, and 40 new paintings, the completely revised editions of two classic Peterson Field Guides are sure to be valuable additions to any birder's pocket or daypack. At a trim size of 5 x 8, they are portable but also beautifully illustrated. Photographs, while modern looking and colorful, capture just one moment in time. The paintings in these guides, however, show all of a bird's key field marks and use the Peterson Identification System to make bird identification easier for beginning and intermediate bird watchers. A team of professional birders has updated the text, the maps, and the art for these authoritative guides. Expert birders also created 35 entertaining and easy-to-use video podcasts, which are available to download. They make fun and educational viewing on a computer desktop or MP3 player. The best-selling field guide since 1934, thePeterson Field Guide to Birds of Eastern and Central North Americais now in its sixth edition. With clear, succinct accounts of more than 500 species, accurate and beautiful paintings on 159 color plates, and 512 maps annotated with extensive range information, this is the most up-to-date and accessible field guide for bird watchers in eastern North America.

Helpful Textbook. April 2, 2011
by
The sixth expanded and updated edition of Field Guide to Birds of Eastern and Central North America packs in color illustrations, species accounts, and maps along with over three hours of video podcasts online to supplement the guide. With paintings showing birds in idea position and key field identifiers highlighted, this is key to Peterson's identification system success, and makes for an ongoing recommendation for any library covering birder guides to the region, the textbook came to me in a great condition, thanks to ecampus.
