Book Description Alfred A. Knopf, United States, Language: English. Brand new Book. From the renowned author of the New York Times best seller The Sibley Guide to Birds, a comprehensive, beautifully illustrated guide to identifying birds in the field--an essential companion for birders of all skill and experience levels.
And now David Sibley, America's premier birder and best-known bird artist, turns his attention to the general characteristics that influence the appearance of all birds, unlocking the clues to their identity. In beautifully rendered illustrations and 16 essays, this scientifically precise volume distills the essence of Sibley's own experience and skills, providing a solid introduction to "naming" the birds.
Sibley also provides critical information on the aspects of avian life that differ from species to species: feathers color, arrangement, shape, molt , behavior and habitat, and sounds. Why not share!

Accessible, clear. Jan 03, Ian rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: beginning birders. Shelves: nature , nonfiction. As a beginning birder, I needed a book to get me started at birding.

That's why I As a beginning birder, I needed a book to get me started at birding. That's why I picked out this book, and I wasn't disappointed. I found a lot of information and ideas in this book, thin as it is. It covers a wide range of topics designed to make it easier to identify birds properly in the field, from bird shapes and feather structures to sounds and optical illusions.
The individual sections are brief, but my impression is that this is intended to present the material in a length so that it's digestible. This guide gave me a lot of fresh ideas about factors that I hadn't considered. As some examples, birds' feathers can look drastically different depending upon the position of the sun and can be influenced by reflections of light off of other surfaces.
Molting and the effects of wear on feathers can also be useful indicators of a species--or, in other cases, can be misleading. There are numerous ways a bird can be misidentified and simply being aware of them should lead to greater accuracy.
