Kenn Kaufman's pocket-sized field "Field Guide to Birds of North America" guides are the perfect take-along tote for any field trip where bird identification is involved. These two thoroughly "user-friendly" versions of the basic "take-along" birdwatching manuals are 'must' references, especially for amateurs easily confused by more complex guides. The English version (0618574239, $18.95) offers a pictorial table of contents, color-tabbed sections, groupings by similar species, and a new introduction. Reference is quick and easy with clear color illustrations and similar groupings allowing newcomers to quickly identify passing birds. And, the Spanish version GUIA DE CAMPO A LAS AVES DE NORTEAMERICA (0618574247, $18.95) assures Latin users won't be left out. If only one introductory take-along tote were chosen, Kaufman's guide should be at the top of the list.
