Item Description...
Presents a new identification guide to North American birds with paintings of hundreds of species and information on bird calls, stages of growth, shapes, markings, ranges, migration routes, breeding locations, and habitats.

Publishers Description
David Allen Sibley, America's most gifted contemporary painter of birds, is the author and illustrator of this comprehensive guide. His beautifully detailed illustrations—more than 6,600 in all—and descriptions of 810 species and 350 regional populations will enrich every birder's experience.

The Sibley Guide's innovative design makes it entirely user friendly. The illustrations are arranged to facilitate comparison, yet still capture the unique character of each species.

The Sibley Guide to Birds provides a wealth of new information:
—Captioned illustrations show many previously unpublished field marks and revisions of known marks
—Nearly every species is shown in flight
—Measurements include length, wingspan, and weight for every species
—Subspecies and geographic varients are covered thoroughly
—Complete voice descriptions are included for every species
—Maps show the complete distribution of every species: summer and winter ranges, migration routes, and rare occurrences

Both novice and experienced birders will appreciate these and other innovative features:
—An introductory page for each family or group of related families makes comparisons simple
—Clear and concise labels with pointers identify field marks directly
—Birds are illustrated in similar poses to make comparisons between species quick and easy
—Illustrations emphasize the way birds look in the field

With The Sibley Guide to Birds, the National Audubon Society makes the art and expertise of David Sibley available to the world in a comprehensive, handsome, easy-to-use volume that will be the indispensable identification guide every birder must own.
"This wonderful book is comprehensive—erudite—in fact, magnificent, a powerful book that will start a new generation of bird books and birding. It provides triple the educational content over any predecessor. The treatments are innovative and superb."
—Frank Gill, the Director of Science at National Audubon Society
David Allen Sibley, son of the well-known ornithologist Fred Sibley, began seriously watching and drawing birds in 1969, at age seven. He has written and illustrated articles on bird identification for Birding and American Birds (now Field Notes) as well as regional publications and books. Since 1980 David has traveled the continent watching birds on his own and as a tour leader for WINGS, Inc. He has lived in California, Arizona, Texas, Florida, Georgia, New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey. He now lives in Concord, Massachusetts.

So nice I had to keep one!  Jun 10, 2008
I bought two of these books for gifts but when my husband saw it he had to have one for us.
It's that nice. We love it.
Gift  Jun 1, 2008

The Sibley Guide to Birds  May 31, 2008
The Sibley Guide to Birds was exactly what I ordered and exactly what I got. Sale went as expected and was delivered on time.
The Absolute Best book on birds.  May 21, 2008
I've had this book for years, but recently purchased a copy for my mom on Mother's Day. She loves it as much as I do and we both prefer it over the other bird field guides we have. For non-experts on bird identification, this book is a must. I have identified a number of birds in my back yard and around the area with this book. The illustrations are excellent. I agree with one of the reviews I saw that said it is not the right size for carrying out into the field in a backpack. It is a hefty and detailed reference book for the home.
simply the best  Apr 6, 2008
Excellent water colors,excellent descriptions,excellent organization.Only minor problem is the size.It is a little large for a field guide.I haven't come across any better guide to birds.
