These handy, informative pocket-sized guides are an essential resource for the novice or experienced birder. The guides in this regional series focus on America's most popular birding hotspots.
Featuring 200 specimens each, the guides group birds by family rather than alphabetically, as approved by the American Ornithological Association. A quick-reference alphabetical guide on the inside cover provides an easy way to find a name quickly.
Each entry has a vivid photograph showing the bird in its native habitat. On the facing page, a list of bulleted points confirms at a glance the bird's identity. These field ID clues note the bird's size, color, beak and wing shape, markings, song, flight pattern, habitat, and hotspots in which to find them. Special field facts highlighted at the bottom of each entry give additional information about what to look for in the bird's behavior, and detailed maps show the range of each bird's habitat. With a comprehensive index including life list, these user-friendly guides will quickly become favorite companions on the track to lifelong birding.

Mel Baughman an accomplished birder, conservationist, author, and publisher, is editor of he best selling National Geographic Reference Atlas to the Birds of North America.From Booklist:
A new field guide introduces a new series of regional handbooks on local birds. With more than 900 species of birds occurring in North America, the novice or casual birder can be overwhelmed by a standard field guide when trying to identify a new bird. Regional, and particularly state-specific, guides are often the best introduction to the fun of watching and identifying birds for newcomers to the avocation of birding. California os one of the continent's bird-rich hotspots, with the added attraction of being a premier vacation destination, and National Geographic has made a wise choice to spotlight this state in launching their series. It covers the 150 most easily spotted of the state's birds. All are presented on a two-page spread, with a clear photograph of the bird facing a page of bulleted facts. These identification aids include the common and scientific names of the bird, its field marks, a statewide range map, behavioral notes, locations where the bird is most easily found, and field notes that provide extra information. This affordable introduction will be very useful for beginners and tourists. Nancy Bent
