It's a wealth of facts with gorgeous accompanying illustrations, especially with the newest revisions to the book including map revisions, new illustrations, and eighty completely new maps. The details attached to each region of the country as well as to each species of bird is astounding. I loved looking at the beautiful illustrations that fill the book as well as learning about birds both around my region of the country and from other parts of the States. Definitely recommended for bird watchers, students, and those who have dedicated their lives and hobbies to their love of birds.
