At the cabin, in the garden, or on a hike, keep this tabbed booklet close at hand. Based on Stan Tekiela's best-selling bird field guides and featuring 140 Southwest birds of Arizona, Southern California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, West Texas, and Utah, the booklet is organized by colour for quick and easy bird identification. Narrow your choices by colour, and view detailed photographs of just a few birds at a time. The pocket-sized format is much easier to use than laminated foldouts, and the tear-resistant pages help to make the book durable in the field.
