One of Joel Lerner's (The Washington Post) The Year's Best Gardening Books "The ultimate handbook to accompany you in the field or while bird watching at home... [A]n excellent visual reference for the identification of birds."--Joel Lerner, Washington Post "Brian Small and co-author Paul Sterry have taken the photo-based field guide to a new level. Their new books are beautifully designed and well written. Photos are tack-sharp, and tightly cropped, giving close-up views of each bird."--Matt Mendenhall, Birder's World "Whether you are a birding fanatic or someone who enjoys looking in their backyard to see what shows up, there is a new bird guide that will fill your need... With great photos of more than 500 species, this is a wonderful photographic guide making identification of birds that much easier. Both the Eastern and Western versions are great gift ideas."--Ken Moran, New York Post "The large, excellent photos, combined with the overall design, make this probably the most attractive general field guide I've seen... This is the first field guide that I would recommend to bird photography aficionados solely on the merit of the pictures, irrespective of its value as a field guide. Finally, the exceptional, large photographs make these an attractive primary field guide option for new and burgeoning birders."--Grant McCreary, Birder's Library "These guides will be most useful for intermediate level birders."--Ian Paulsen, Birdbooker Report "Excellent state-of-the art digital photos and comprehensive, up-to-date data on North American birds... Comparable guides include Ted Floyd's Smithsonian Field Guide to the Birds of North America and Edward Brinkley's National Wildlife Federation (NWF) Field Guide to Birds of North America. All three titles are excellent. However, the Sterry-Small guide's larger photos aid identification and highlight variable plumage. Corner insets identify groups of birds for easier browsing. Birders will love the portability, excellent photography, habitat, and conservation information."--Sally Bickley, Library Journal "This pair of photographic guides provides superb quality photographic images which are well up to the best of modern standards. If your American photo-guides are a few years old, now is the time to update them. The text is surprisingly detailed and concisely covers all plumages, as well as 'Status and Habitat,' 'Voice,' and 'Observation tips,' and the distribution maps are detailed and clear. These are now the best photographic guides for North America and exceptional value-for-money too."--Steve Gantlett, Birding World "Flat-out gorgeous. We see the birds standing, swimming and in flight. There's the usual field buide-style information--maps of their range, what they sound like, etc.--but this book seems to make things uniquely clear."--Sandy Bauers, Philadelphia Inquirer "Birds of Eastern North America: A Photographic Guide and Birds of Western North America: A Photographic Guide should be a welcome addition to the libraries of serious birders as well as those who enjoy birdwatching only from their own backyard feeders... I recommend both books."--Brad Sylvester, Manchester Bird Watching Examiner "The photos in these books are large, crisp and clear... They are durable field guides that easily slip into a backpack or even a large pocket in an overcoat, but their pictures are good enough to be a coffee table book... Of all the various field guides I have ever seen, these ... are by far the best."--James Swan, "Outstanding... The photos are of such superb detail you expect them to fly off the pages."--Bill Cochran, Roanoke Times "Stunning. This was the first word that came to mind upon cracking open these new guides... The photography alone is worth owning both Eastern and Western editions. Even so, the accompanying text is fantastic too."--Eddie Call
