From Little, Brown and Company:

The culmination of many years of research, observation, and study, the THE NEW STOKES FIELD GUIDE TO BIRDS: Eastern and Western Region is factually, visually, and organizationally superior to any other photographic field guide available.

These easy-to-use guides feature 545 (Eastern) and 636 (Western) North American bird species and more than 2,000 stunning color photographs. And yet they’re portable enough to fit in your pocket! The photographs cover all significant plumages, including male, female, summer, winter, immature, morphs, important subspecies, and birds in flight. The guide includes:

  • the newest scientific and common names and phylogenetic order
  • special help for identifying birds in flight through important clues of behavior, plumage, and shape
  • detailed descriptions of songs and calls
  • important behavioral information and key habitat preferences
  • the newest range maps, detailing species’ winter, summer, year-round ranges, and migration routes

Whether you are a novice or experienced birder, these new Stokes guides will take your birding to the next level.

 

Love the Stokes field guide but wish it were more portable? Rejoice, for your wish will soon be granted. These new regional guides are basically the same as the “big” Stokes but with out-of-region and extreme vagrant species removed, making them much thinner.

A more detailed look at these new editions is coming soon.
