Birds only blown over there from Russia during a storm Give me a break Way to much filler material I was also hoping for a lot information concerning specific details about habits or life style stuff of the birds too But very little is given for each bird It does provide very good description of the birds though Look at the actual size of the book before ordering It is a small book This field guide is beautiful and has some great features There is a ick index on the inside front cover to make it easy to find things fast and there are some pages that show raptors in flight from Bon Appetit, Yall underneath which is just brilliant There is a ton of information in this book It is my favorite field guide I also have the Sibley s Eastern US guide and I prefer this one It is well worth the price OK Naysayers Stop the gossip about which field guide is better between NGS and Sibley They are BOTH superb and they each have their strengths Personally for the field I prefer NGS for the size and information provided I keep Sibley in the car for a backup The NGS guide is just so much better overall for fieldwork and birding not to slight Sibley which is wonderful I find that identification keys illustrations behavior and ease ofse in the field is just better with NGS The 7th edition has done its homework and has come out with a winning product You won t be sorry with the purchaseDave KrueperCorrales NM.
