"Jon Dunn’s masterful field knowledge of North America’s birds and Jonathan Alderfer’s unparalleled artistic ability and direction shine throughout this up-to-date overhaul of a classic guide.  Birders at all levels of experience benefit from a guide that is both comprehensive and accurate, and National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America is exactly what they need." 
-Kimball L. Garrett, Ornithology Collections Manager, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

“The best birding field guide you can buy...National Geo 6 is now my default go-to guide. It is the design innovations that push this book to the front. You will not find a field guide that gives you better and faster access to the information it contains.” –Minneapolis Star Tribune blog
 
"Shelve all your other field guides for Dunn and Alderfer’s brand-new sixth edition, which leaps beyond previous editions, as well as all competition...Study it at home. Carry it afield. It has no peer."
–Daniel Gibson (birding expert), Amazon.com
 
“This new, sixth edition is by far the best of this splendid guide's incarnations so far. [It] is, simply put, the one book every North American birder needs to have on the shelf. Beginners will find it attractive, easy to use, and portable; intermediate and advanced birders will refer to it again and again with profit--and with surprise at how much it can teach even the most experienced among us.” –The ABA Blog
 
“The 6th edition - thoroughly re-tooled by Jon Dunn and Jonathan Alderfer - contains more new material than any other previously published revision, and it is most impressive...The combination of organization, illustration, and design adds up to a book that should please birders at virtually any level of experience.” –Birding e-Bulletin
 
“It belongs in every birder’s library! From beginner to expert, it will be useful to any birder. And for those interested in geographic variation, it is a must.” –The Birder’s Library
