Next to the Birder's Handbook, which tried several funky organizational and icongraphic systems at once, Kaufman is pure readability. The attractive, intelligent presentation here is immediately appealing.

This is the book that goes beyond the field guides: not a guide for naming the birds, but a reference for understanding them -- a complete, handy, one-volume encyclopedia on the fascinating lives of our birds.* Includes information about more than 900 birds: complete life histories for 680 species that occur regularly in North America and shorter accounts for more than 230 others that visit occasionally, with more than 600 beautiful photographs and more than 600 range maps.* Gives every important detail about the lives of birds: what they eat, where they build their nests, how many eggs they lay, what habitat they choose, when they migrate, what their current conservation status is, and much more.

I was expecting this to be a really nice book of John Audubon's bird prints, but it vastly exceeded my expectations. First, I did not really anticipate how big (and heavy) the book is. When I showed my wife, she asked where the legs were, believing this to be our new coffee table! The book is too heavy to be easily moved around, and thought needs to go into where it is kept.

However... it is fantastic! This is how valuable books should be made. The quality of the book is superb, the pages are made of a fine, rich paper, and most importantly, the size color, sharpness, and boldness of the prints is breathtaking.

If you love birds and bird art, you will treasure this book.

Great reference guide, nice photos and more information about the bird than you get in field guides. Very detailed information on descriptions and habit.

Was highly recommended by my full time birdwatching neighbor. I really like it.

this was one of my favorite birding books to thumb through on occasion. someone else must have liked it so much that they also forgot to return it to me... buying it again

I found the information a great adjunct to my field guides and was so impressed with all the detailed information that I purchased two additional copies for gifts.

So nice to finally find a book that tells what birds actually do rather than just describing what they look like. Full of interesting tidbits about habits and goings on in the bird world for the enjoyment of an amateur (back yard) birder. Would recommend it to anyone.
Great resource
