You don't finish with field guides, you just borrow them from the library to see if you need to purchase them. I will not purchase. But it is an excellent guide. Great simplified drawings to show you what features to look for in a warbler.

Excellent guide to North American wood warblers. The guide is illustrated with both paintings and photographs, including a helpful comparison of the undersides of warbler tails and undertail coverts. The text provides a detailed description of key identification points and the life history of each warbler.

This very comprehensive field guide contains Peterson field guide drawings (in the front) along with very detailed descriptions and photographs for each Warbler species found in North America. This is a must guide for any serious birding library.

Some great information but a little outdated. Poor layout and not enough pictures.
