Media reviews

"[...] The New Stokes Field Guide to Birds: Eastern Region and Western Region are very nice photographic field guides. If you like the big Stokes guide, but wish you could take it birding with you, then you'll be happy with the appropriate regional one. Conversely, if you have the big one but have no desire to use it as a primary field guide, then the lack of new material make the regionals unnecessary for you. And what if you don't have the big one? Get it! It is the best general photographic reference for North American birds, and one of the books I'd recommend to all NA birders. And then if you find you'd like to use it in the field, get your regional one as well."
