Reprinted by arrangement with the National Geographic Society from the book Field Guide to the Birds of North America, 6th edition.
The National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America, Sixth Edition is a beautiful guide as expected from all the other editions of this guide and all the works done by National Geographic.
The 6th edition adds 23 new species, updated classification according to the AOU checklist, and includes every bird species found in North America (which includes all the really rare ones!).
The illustrations are beautiful and a balance of artistic value and identification assistance. The 6th edition has a quick-find index which is on the inside covers and provides an overview of bird families and the pages they’re found. While the National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America, Sixth Edition isn’t the perfect guide for identification, it is an excellent field guide and an attractive book to give to budding birders and long-time naturalists.
The National Geographic Backyard Guide to the Birds of North America is a handy-sized, easy-to-use tool for backyard birding. Interspersed with the species accounts are pages of information on observing and attracting birds, various behaviors, and other interesting points about backyard birds. If you are a highly attuned backyard birder already we recommend you get the National Geographic Backyard Guide to the Birds of North America as a gift for a friend, neighbor, or family member to spark their interest in birds! A bestseller with more than a quarter of a million copies sold, this completely revised and updated edition is the most authoritative, sought-after guide to birds of North America on the market - for birders of all levels.
National Geographic has a long tradition of using extraordinary illustration to bring birds and other subjects to life. Louis Agassiz Fuertes (1874–1927) undertook many expeditions throughout the Western Hemisphere and contributed to National Geographic and more than 50 other publications.

From the author of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl comes a novel about music, love, friendship, and freedom. Now in its fourth edition, the National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America is the ultimate birder's field guide.
Essential, comprehensive, and easy to use, the revised edition of National Geographic Complete Birds of North America is an astonishing resource that covers every bird species found in North America as well as all the seasonal visitors. Jonathan Alderfer, a widely published author and field guide illustrator, is well known in the birding community for his expertise as a field ornithologist and his knowledge of North American birds. WASHINGTON (March 15, 2013)—National Geographic, a leading authority on birding, is publishing a handy, easy-to-use pocket guide to 160 of the most common and iconic North American bird species this spring.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC POCKET GUIDE TO THE BIRDS OF NORTH AMERICA also provides tips on the best binoculars to buy, the basics of bird identification, and opportunities to broaden one’s bird watching experiences and expertise. Affordable and lightweight enough to carry on any outing, these two newest additions to National Geographic’s comprehensive library of birding books and field guides are a perfect way for the whole family to discover the joys of bird-watching and explore the continent’s amazing bird life. Laura Erickson has authored six books about birds — including “Sharing the Wonder of Birds with Kids, winner of the National Outdoor Book Award — writes for birding magazines and blogs for the American Birding Association. Both are well appreciated because the beauty will attract newer birders and the completeness of the art aids in identification.
We regularly get numerous species of warblers that pass through, most of which are not included. The text includes information on identification, range, food, and nesting along with beautifully illustrated artwork and large range map. There are also three pages describing citizen science which includes information on Project Feeder Watch, the Great Backyard Bird Count, and eBird.
Not only is this super cool looking (includes head shots of the birds that we wish were bigger!) but it makes for a quick comparison of birds of different families but of similar colors. Over 90 original paintings showcase the work of four artists who introduced the Geographic readership to both common and rare species of birds. After Fuertes’ untimely death, National Geographic commissioned his friend Allan Brooks (1869–1946) to paint hundreds of bird illustrations for a series of ten articles in the 1930s.
He has contributed extensively to several editions of the National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America and co-edited the fifth edition. Enabling JavaScript in your browser will allow you to experience all the features of our site. Sturdy, portable, and easy-to-use, it features the most complete information available on every bird species known to North America. Entries are organized by family group, the taxonomic organization newly updated to match current American Ornithologists' Union guidelines.
He has served as editor, author, and illustrator on a number of National Geographic birding books, including the 4th, 5th, and 6th editions of the bestselling Field Guide to the Birds of North America. From the tiny tufted titmouse and house wren to the majestic great blue heron and bald eagle, the book covers the top species from coast to coast. Written by Jonathan Alderfer, it speaks directly to children about the captivating winged world beyond their windows. He has written or edited numerous bird books for National Geographic, most recently “Backyard Guide to the Birds of North America” and “Bird-watcher’s Bible.” Also an artist, he has contributed paintings to “National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America” and co-authored its sixth edition in 2011.

Her long-running radio program, “For the Birds,” airs on public and community radio stations. National Geographic has been meeting their need for clear and accurate information for 25 years with our million-selling Field Guide to the Birds of North America. In my review of the fifth edition I qualified my recommendation, especially for owners of a prior edition. Walter Weber (1906–1979) served as a staff illustrator for National Geographic for 22 years and painted birds as well as other types of animals. Alderfer is also well known in the birding community for his expertise as a field ornithologist.
Within a family, each separate bird entry has dozens of tips and illustrations on species' gender, age group, behavior, habitat, nesting and feeding habits, and migration routes.
For easy identification, each bird is presented in a full-color-page spread, with photographs, illustrations and a description of the bird, its typical behavior and its range. A perfect gift for children and grandchildren of birders, this kid-friendly guide provides engaging photography, fun facts that kids love, habitat snapshots and interactive birding activities and crafts. Now, to better serve the expanding market, we’ve customized our field-guide format to offer unique coverage for birders east or west of the Rocky Mountains. Providing full information on more than 1,000 species, this book features hundreds of range and migration maps, cutting-edge information on identification, and more thanA 4,000 annotated illustrations by expert bird artists. A convenient color Visual Index located inside the front cover helps guide users to the right page.
Durable covers stand up to outdoor use, with integrated quick-reference flaps that double as place-markers.Field Guide to the Birds of Western North America offers 750 regular species, 600 new range maps, 100 casual and accidental birds, and 55 rarities.
There is a lot more information for each species, information that might feel unnecessary in the small field guide.
Personally this new edition is not going to take the place of Sibley as my primary field guide. This guide includes more species, but the Sibley has more illustrations of each included species, and arrows pointing out the major field marks. I would highly recommend this fifth edition to any North American birder who does not own a previous edition, or who uses a previous edition as their primary guide.
