And, like most things in Belize, birding here is a unique experience. This is more of a reading book than a field guide, and also has a bit about commercial bushfood industry and gourmet recipes, but still does have some very very good stuff in it. And it wasn't just mosquitoes that were killed by summertime spraying but America's beloved backyard Robins—"the one bird," Peterson wrote in his 1934 guide, "that everybody knows."

I reviewed the New Jersey volume in May 2014 and, being in Florida at the moment, I thought this was a good time to take a closer look at both the Florida volume, published just last month, and the Colorado volume, published in June 2014. (I will be referring to the guides by simply their state names for the rest of this review, I think that makes it easier for both writer and reader.) Though all the books in the series share common elements of design, structure, and photography, each one is written by a different author–a noted birder/writer who lives in and actively birds the state he is writing about.

Cronin's Key Guide to Australian Wildflowers, Leonard Cronin. I would recommend this book to anyone who is starting out into the world of birds! "The Birds of Iowa Field Guide" is the first and greatest source I have found to identify birds in my own Iowa backyard. I've only used Slater and Simpson and Day in the field as they are the smaller and lighter books. For example when you are in the search mode it shows a scrolling list of all the birds in the database, when you are viewing a particular bird it shows the species information about the bird including a drawing, Latin name, and a button for playing the birds call.
