Media reviews

"[...] National Geographic Pocket Guide to the Birds of North America is a great introduction to North America’s common birds, promoting not only identification but also a genuine interest in birds. It is ideal for those who are interested in birds, but not yet a birder. But earnest birders, even beginners, would be better served by a full field guide."
- Grant McCreary (06-10-2013), read the full review at The Birder's Library
