    "National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America is, as you would imagine, a book about birds that live in North America. To the common person this may not be relevant, but to enthusiasts it's actually very well written and illustrated. If you're into birds and their nesting/migration patterns this book will be invaluable. If not, well open it and see. You might just find out you enjoy it! I used it to classify a bird that was always in my yard I constantly wondered about!"

    "This unique book does id not like a typical dry field book. This insightful and fresh new book offers an approach that has not been done before. Instead of identifying the animal, the guidebook actually depicts behavior of the many North American mammals throughout the country. With a diverse blend of pictures and daily habits, the guidebook does an excellent job providing a comprehensive daily overview into the many mammals in North America. "

    "There are so many field guidebooks out there. I don't think there's really one that's better than the other. This just touches on birds and nothing else. Maybe the topic should be reworded."
