I like the illustrations a lot and used them extensively in paintings, but as a guide this book falls short because first the reader has to have a good understanding of different birds.. there's no real key unlike more useful books I have. On the other hand, Peterson has created a very complete listing of birds East of the Rockies.
Roger Tory Peterson was an American naturalist, ornithologist, artist, and educator, and held to be one of the founding inspirations for the 20th century environmental movement.More about Roger Tory Peterson...
