Choosing the Best BirdingFor
As an educator I'm often asked to help people with advice about choosing a good field guide for bird watching or birding. There are so many different guides it's hard to wade through them all and to know which ones are the most user friendly. This post is not designed to tell you if the Sibley field guide is better than the National Geographic field guide. I am giving you guidelines to help you make your own decisions by offering a rubric so that you can intelligently weigh all the options.
