National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America

Edited by Jon Dunn. Illustrated by Jonathan Alderfer

The fully revised and updated seventh edition of the best-selling North American bird field guide is the most up-to-date guide on the market. Perfect for beginning to advanced birders, it is the only book organised to match the latest American Ornithologists' Union taxonomy.

With more than 2.75 million copies in print, this is the most frequently updated of all North American bird field guides. Filled with hand-painted illustrations from top nature artists, the 7th edition includes 37 new species for a total of 1,023 species; 16 new pages allow for 250 fresh illustrations, 80 new maps, and 350 map revisions. Other updates include updates of the taxonomy to recent significant scientific rearrangement, the addition of standardised banding codes, and a text completely vetted by birding experts.

Reviews of the the sixth edition:

"Jon Dunn's masterful field knowledge of North America's birds and Jonathan Alderfer's unparalleled artistic ability and direction shine throughout this up-to-date overhaul of a classic guide. Birders at all levels of experience benefit from a guide that is both comprehensive and accurate, and [this book] is exactly what they need."
