    1. Very good but dated reference to the natural history of North American birds Each species has its own entry, plus there are brief essays on behaviors common to all or many birds.

    2. A must have book for birders Put it next to your field guide but, take it out and read it from time to time.A couple of experienced birders told me I needed this book if I wanted to learn about birds than what a field guide could provide Field guides are primarily for ID Besides the information about individual species the book has many essays including sections on courting, nesting, feeding, anatomy, migration, etc It also has short biographies on many of the people responsible for what we kno [...]

    3. If you are any kind of birder and are interested in a bird other than simple identification, this is an excellent book It s compact, yet goes into detail about bird identification detailing habitat, feeding habits, and reproduction including such details as what type of nest, where, how many babies, who broods, and how many days from hatching to fledging for every North American species A great behavior book, and on every opposite page it includes in depth essays on a variety of subjects from n [...]

    4. This is an excellent reference book that contains a compendium of information regarding the natural history of North American birds Besides detailed breeding and behavioral accounts for each species, there are also very informative research sections interspersed within the main body of the book The authors are to be commended for this excellent wealth of avian information however I must add that I am NOT a big fan of the radical population control views of one of the authors, Paul Ehrlich.

    5. A great reference once you have identified the bird This book is great for telling you the habit and habits of the bird, including nesting, mating, feeding, etc We use this book often to answer the seemingly endless questions from curious children watching the bird feeder or just walking through the woods.

    6. FANTASTIC This is NOT a field guide there are no pretty pictures This is EVERYTHING else What type of food, preferred habitat, type of nest, of eggs, how many clutches, timing of nest, foraging methods, etc for every species PLUS the interesting essays it is like Ornithology 101 really wonderful A must have for anyone really interested in birds.

    7. I ve read this in the sense that it has been a frequent reference over the years as well as a textbook for my ornithology class I have not read it cover to cover Essential for anyone interested in North American birds.

    8. A great field guide companion I ve used this book for insight into particular species and also for basic explanations of ornithological concepts.

    9. Though published in 1988, most of the material provided on diet and behavior is still valid The Sibley book on bird behavior is a current, but less comprehensive, resource.

    10. This book is extremely informative and interesting read on bird biology and ecology in North America.

    11. an essential must read for birders of all levels wishing to know all about migratory and non migratory birds.
