Birds of North America.
The book groups similar birds, so you can easily compare possibilities.
A typical two-page spread lists five birds. Most entries have a range map (many maps are new in this edition), a sonagram to picture the bird's song, and a brief description of the bird, its habitat, and important mannerisms and field marks.
Color illustrations by well-known bird artist Arthur Singer depict birds in their habitats, showing feather patterns and colors appropriate to each season, sex, or age. Bird silhouettes, flight patterns, and birds in flight are usually shown separately. This is a good working guide, especially for beginners.
