Description

An easy-to-use, large print edition of the classic, best-selling field guide from Peterson Field Guides

For decades, the Peterson Field Guide to Birds of Eastern and Central North America has been a popular and trusted guide for birders of all levels, thanks to its famous system of identification and unparalleled illustrations. Now the guide is reissued in a larger format specially produced for those who don't want to take their reading glasses into the field. Peterson's treasured illustrations have been reproduced in beautiful color, species descriptions include only the most important identification elements—size, voice, and habitat—and color range maps, conveniently located next to the species accounts, have been updated specifically for this book.

For more than 85 years, Peterson Field Guides have set the standard by which other field guides are measured. Comprehensive and authoritative, they are essential additions to any naturalist's bookshelf or backpack.
