New portable guides that are specifically designed for use in the field - and eminently portable. 550 species, 4,000+ Sibley paintings, 6+ views of each species, 550 maps; 4.5x7.5 inches, 432 pgs.
The publication, in 2000 and 2001, of the huge and hugely acclaimed Sibley Guide to Birds and Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behavior gave birders encyclopedic sources of information about all the avian species they might see in North America. Now David Allen Sibley has prepared 2 guides, specifially designed for use in the field--and eminently portable. Information and thousands of illustrations culled from the first 2 books, plus many entirely new illustrations and newly drawn maps.
The new portable guides that birders have been waiting for:
* Clear and detailed bird descriptions, augmented with information on habitat and behavior (absent from most field guides)
* All-new maps vetted by 90 experts who provided the most up-to-date and accurate range information ever available in a field guide
* Range: Each volume covers a larger area--especially along the dividing line between Eastern and Western regions--than any other guide.
