Roger Tory Peterson had already made his mark with his innovative field guide when he conducted DDT research during World War II. His friend and fellow naturalist Rachel Carson built on these efforts and eventually wrote Silent Spring, a landmark text that, along with Peterson's field guide, jump-started the modern environmental movement. By combining the tireless observation of a scientist with the imaginative skills of an artist and writer, Peterson created a field guide that Robert Bateman, in his foreword to the fifth edition, says was the doorway for millions of people into the wonderland of natural history. The Peterson Identification System has been used in the more than fifty books that make up the Peterson Field Guide series. Peterson's magnum opus, now in its fifth edition, created the trail for countless field guides to follow. They are still following year by year, but his is the standard by which all other field guides are judged. On the morning of July 28, 1996, Roger Peterson was painting his final bird plate. He died peacefully in his sleep later that day. It is fitting that his final work--a culmination of more than sixty years of observing, painting, and writing--should be this one, a revision of the guide that started his legacy.… (més)

You can't get any better than this Peterson Field Guide on birds. It is chock-full of professional, colored drawings and all the info you need to know about these birds. My mother and I were able to identify Roseate Spoonbill's a few years back, around 2018, that showed up on Cow Bayou here in Southeast Texas for the first time ever. I grew up there and my parent's have lived there since 1979. ( )

The easiest birding book to use I have found. I have two copies, one I keep my life list in. ( )

As the first of Peterson's guides, the guide to Eastern North America (sometimes titled Eastern and Central or East of the Rockies) was, in its earliest edition, titled simply Field Guide to the Birds. That title should remain with the eastern guides and should not be combined with the new Guide to the Birds of North America, which covers the entire region.

The paperback version of the 4th (1980) edition carries variations of three different titles:
(1) Eastern Birds - Front Cover and Spine.
(2) A Field Guide to the Birds of Eastern and Central North America - Inside Cover.
(3) A Field Guide to the Birds: A Completely New Guide to All the Birds of Eastern and Central North America.
