National Geographic Field Guide to Birds: Michigan Reviews
If you live in Michigan and like bird watching you have to get this book. I have been able to identify many birds and it is nice that I can just stick in in my pocket. The book contains real pictures so it's easier to identify birds and it also has the birds indexed by their color, so if you see a bird and you don't know what it is, you can simply look at a list of birds of that particular color.
My mother-in-law moved to a new part of the state, so we got her this book so she could identify the birds at her bird feeders. Her husband said it was stupid, but within weeks he was grabbing the book to look up birds that were outside the window, too! The book is comprehensive, but it can sometimes be difficult to find a specific bird, especially because it does not feature photos of both male and females of the species.
I love this field guide. It's easy to identify the different bird species with the great pictures. I know many of the birds that live where I do but once in a while a bird shows up that I just don't know and I grab this first. It tells the colors of the juveniles too and behavior along with the habitats and their nests and where they build them. This is a small enough book to carry around while taking nature walks or keep it handy for just looking out the window and watching the bird feeders.

A bit small, but Mom liked it for her back porch viewing and getting to know facts about her 'well-fed' indigenous species....
I bought two--one for my sister and one for myself!
we use this book a lot at our house. our bird feeders seem to attract all types of birds I have never seen and this easy to use guide makes it easy to ID birds we have no clue as to what they are. Would recommend to a novice birder like myself...
This has been a great book. Pictures are good, information is good and small enough to keep right by a chair for birdwatching.
