For decades, scientists have known that migratory birds use Earth’s geomagnetic field—along with light, stars, and other cues—to guide them on remarkably long journeys. At the time, we recognized this as by far the best simple folding guide to local birds, with a species selection that was highly accurate for our area, good illustrations, and a helpful organization and text. If you live in the centre of Australia, I would say definitely get this book.

The illustrations are of very good quality and the field marks are always easily visible with added text notation where applicable. Cam Findlay has drawn on the expertise of birders from every region of the country to tell you what birds to look for and where to find them across each province and territory, including major cities as well as national, provincial and municiapal parks and, for the very adventurous, the wilderness of the high Arctic. In addition, the authors provide an introduction to each group of birds that addresses the major problems involved in identifying or observing the group: how to separate birds of prey in flight, how to organize a sea watching trip, which duck hybrids can be confused with which main species.

Places where you stand a good chance to see a particular species of bird and, if you're a photographer, where you stand the best chance of getting a good picture of a specific species. In fact, I have two of the old S&S field guides, so I've cut the plates out of the Skutch and Stiles guide and pack them with the Garrigues field guide. The actual mark descriptions are in the short paragraph that is with each bird. It is fairly technical, and out of print.

Peterson was a better artist than Sibley and he was better served by his printer. Each guide will help you know what to look for and when. An interesting difference between Morcombe and all the other guides is that the text and pictures for each species are together in a block on the one page.

Each cabin offers a private, outdoor sitting area with gas grills, campfire pits, picnic areas and woods to explore. The authors have done an amazing job covering every bird species in a country so rich in bird life. I was surprised and impressed by the depth and authority of the species descriptions. It is so important that we have these books. It changes as science makes discoveries about the ancestry of birds. It is delightful and decidedly non-technical. You can zoom in, but since the size of the area dedicated to the image doesn’t change, it doesn’t help much.

Carry your camera with you and good things happen. After this I was more aware of the occasional American Robin, Cardinal and Blue Jays I'd see around the streets, let alone the Mourning Dove, Chickadees, Mockingbird, Oriole, Tufted Titmice among others I could spot in Central Park. As a photographic resource for geographic variation, it is without equal, and the project of "quantification" is an interesting way to inspire birders to look more critically and more carefully at their birds... it is highly recommended as one that every birder can use with pleasure and with profit."
