Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! While you won't find pictures of every bird in flight, nor variations in winter/summer plumage, this guide has everything else that the average Ontario birder might need. In fact, what the book sacrifices in scientific detail, it gains in user-friendly clarity. As well, its regional focus increases one's confidence in the realm of bird identification. The focus on Ontario extends beyond the range maps to the descriptions of each bird listed. It really motivates a person to get out to the places listed in the hopes of seeing birds that other books convince you could never be seen without a trip up to the Arctic or down into the United States. There is a handy picture index at the beginning of the book, a colour-coded thumb index, and a strong, flexible binding well-suited to frequent use. If 90% of your birding takes place in Ontario, start with this guide.
