2. It's filled with beautiful, colorful portraits of each of the birds. Great for the more the visually-learning type.
3. There are little maps of the United States for each section that displays darken areas for the bird population.
4. At the back of the book is a check-list for

The non-traditional organization of this book throws many birders, but I think the illustrations are beautiful and it has a lot of useful information in it. Its size is nice for packing around.
