Excerpts from Peterson Field Guide to Birds of North America
Click on each image below to see a larger view


Colorful songbirds with heavy, seed-crushing bills, cardinals and grosbeaks are popular at feeders.


In North America, the Orchard and Baltimore Orioles are fairly widespread in the East; Bullock's is widespread in the West; and the Spot-breasted Oriole is limited to South Florida.


Peterson sometimes painted over figures on a plate and sometimes even cut them out. Canyon Wren was missing from the original art. Michael O'Brien painted a new Canyon Wren for inclusion in the new field guide.


The Orange Bishop is native to Africa but has been introduced in California. Peterson had not painted this bird for his field guides, so Michael O’Brien painted this one.


Thumbnail maps help you determine at a glance if a bird is likely to be in your region.


Large maps in back give detailed range information.
