Review, The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America, in Audubon Magazine online

New! Here's another wonderful review of The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America from National Audubon Magazine online. "I haven't been able to put it down" says reviewer Wayne Mones.
"The new Stokes guide ... should put to rest any remnants of the debate over photos versus illustrations... the key to any guide, photographic or illustrated, is in the quality of the images and in having enough of them to show the birds in their diagnostic plumages and postures. The new Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America fulfills this requirement in spades... [It] is a strong candidate for the title of best field guide ever... The text is, perhaps the most expansive of any one-volume North American guide in print...since it arrived in my home, I haven't been able to put it down."

Wow, what a rave review! It makes me even more excited to get my own copy. It sounds like it may convert me from a preference for illustrations to a preference for photographs. Can't wait, congratulations!
