I used to read this guide when I was a kid and I loved it. Once I got into birding years later as an adult I got it, but then I started to think that maybe it was a bit too old school and outdated so I bought about 5-6 other field guides. For me this is still the best as a field guide. I like some of the other books for how they group birds by colors, and of course the Sibley books are simply beautiful, but when I'm out in the field, I still think this book is the best at pointing out the field marks (the concept of "field marks" I believe that Roger Tory Peterson invented).

To me this book defines the word "classic". It's been around for years, and there's a reason for that! Highly recommended!

Bought this along with the Sibley guide. I like the illustrations in both but I prefer Sibley's because, thanks to the range maps for each species,you are able to tell if a species resides in your area. With the Peterson book you have to flip to a separate section for this info. I'd like to see a guide that showed more info for fewer species in smaller areas. For instance, I live in Oregon and most of the birds in my Western North America guide are not located here. I'd like to have an Oregon-only or Washington-Oregon-California guide. With fewer species you could have much larger illustrations.

In some respects, "Western Birds" deserves four stars. Certainly in its detail, it's a four-star book. However, from the standpoint of it's illustrations, it leaves a lot to be desired. The snowy egret, great blue and green-backed herons are examples. Because they are more detailed than in nature, when you finally spot one, you're not quite sure that you're seeing them in breeding season, or that they're immature, or that it's breeding season and they're immature. Further the green-backed heron is also known as the green heron, and they aren't "green" just as the great blue isn't really blue. I mugh prefer photographs such as those in "Birds of California." However, the latter isn't as detailed. Either way, from what I've found - not as a birder but a photographer - one either carries a library with him or has four or five books to cross reference. Yes, Petersen's will always be one of those, but there are other books that are better (and worse) than this one.

(I'm only using the herons and egrets as examples. The tufted titmouse [aka titmaus] is one more of many confusing examples. It is said that the only crested bird west of the Mississippi is the Steller's Jay. The tufted titmouse is "tufted," but it sure looks like a crest to me.) See photos in my "Bird Gallery."

I hunted for this 1990 edition as a gift since it has all the info needed without the extra maps included in the more current edition. The nice thing about Peterson's guide is that it provides arrows pointing to identifying features on the bird, it and that's really helpful for new birders and frankly for anyone not familiar with a particular species.

This field guide is not quite up to the level of quality of the Peterson guide to eastern birds. It hasn't been updated as recently, and there have been some taxonomic changes--which can be found in the Sibley guide or the National Geographic field guide. Also, a few of the newest features in the eastern guide have not yet been integrated into this one, such as the small range maps on the page for each species.

Overall though, this is very similar to the guide to eastern birds. I like the large, clear illustrations, and I find this guide very easy to use. I wish they would update this guide to bring it up-to-date. I believe the Peterson's guides are a little bit easier to use than Sibley's for beginners, although I came to prefer the Sibley's guide as I became more advanced as a birder. If faced with the choice of this book though, I'd recommend the Sibley's or National Geographic guides...this one just isn't quite there yet.

The first copy of this book was missing, in that the package had split open. It was promptly replaced. I keep it near my window overlooking the bird feeders. There are so many doves and sparrows, I rarely see any rare birds. Great fun in my retired years.

Peterson's Field Guide Western Birds replaces a lost copy of another Peterson Field Guide for Western Birds. Roger Troy Peterson's books provide accurate identification methods for birds and is used daily. I recommend this book for other bird watchers.
As a past time I started to feed the birds in my yard, I needed this book to Identify the many different spieces and related info about all the different birds who came to feed. It's a tremdous book with color photos, details and habitats of the birds in the Southwest....!
