Linda and I gave up trying to identify fall warblers in their drab or nonexistent colors. But not any longer, thanks to The Warbler Guide by Tom Stephenson and Scott Whittle. Wow! This is the best warbler book we’ve ever seen. Actually, we’ve never seen any bird book like this one, published this year by Princeton University Press.
Whittle’s photos – and there are thousands here – are stunning. Stephenson’s in-depth comprehensive information will – if we ever master it all – make us real experts on our favorite species of bird. The book’s 560 pages will entertain and inform you for the rest of your life.
There’s plenty of innovative and interesting information here for the birding expert, but, as amateurs and relative newcomers to the sport of birding, the “Visual Finder Guides” have been most beneficial so far.
