One has to appreciate the flight views of the many birds.The colors of the illustrations are excellent. It is done with detailed drawings and inserted comments to watch for, when you have a quick sighting. Pages are clean with normal wear. Thus, an entire page is devoted to the red-shouldered hawk and its differing appearances in the eastern U.S., Florida, and California; similarly, gulls are distinguished by age and warblers by sex. The Sibley guide is more comprehensive than the National Geographic guide (NG) in its inclusion of views.

Preferred by birders, the second edition is completely revised with more than 600 new paintings and 111 rare species added, new information on habitat and behavior, and more tips on finding species in the field. The organization and layout for this book is outstanding, and though it may remind some of the equally excellent Birds of Europe by Svensson, Mullarney, and Zetterstrom, it differs somewhat. Report incorrect product info. If you want to compare juvenile plumages of two similar species, you can find them both at the top of the column, just under the images of flying birds. As previously mentioned, ample space is given to illustrations that show plumage variations by age, sex, and geography within a single species.

While Kaufman has crammed an incredible amount of information into a small, very quickly accessible volume, Sibley's is far more useful in distinguishing between species. The familiar yellow warbler, for instance, gets no less than nine individual illustrations documenting its geographic, seasonal, and sex variations--plus another eight smaller illustrations showing it in flight.
