"I thought the field guide was good overall."

By: Joseph Jones From LA

Hunts. Competes.
I thought the field guide was good overall. Most of the pictures were pretty true to life. These are not photos, but prints so some of the bird colorations may have been off a little. The only thing I had some disagreements with were the ranges they displayed for some of the species therefore the 4 stars. Would still recommend the book to other fellow hunters.

Product Rating: 4 out of 5-stars.

This pocket field guide includes everything needed to correctly identify 73 species of North American waterfowl and upland game birds. Chris Smith's full color illustrations detail every important aspect of each bird and are complemented by concise, informative descriptions.

You will find special features of each species highlighted in the illustrations showing the differences between male and female and the differences among other closely related species. There are diagrams for both upland game birds and waterfowl showing every part of the bird that is used for identification. There is a flyway map of North America accompanied by a detailed list showing the degree of occurrence of each waterfowl species in each flyway.
