Here's a peek inside the book. Look at all the photos of Cape May Warbler and the extensive text. We include more photos for the difficult to identify birds or birds with multiple plumages due to age, sex, morph and subspecies.

"The photos are just downright amazing. Even the LBJs, oh, I mean the drab sparrows are easily identifiable using The New Stokes Field Guide to Birds..." says the review on Thermal Birding Blog.

"The New Stokes Field Guide to Birds: Eastern and Western Region continues and expands on their record of excellent books about birds. I was... impressed by the depth and authority of the species descriptions... If you have not yet used a Stokes photographic guide, I highly recommend trying one" says the review of our new guides on 10,000 Birds Blog.
