National Geographic- publisher of the authoritative birding guide, Field Guide to the Birds of North America- expands its series of regional bird field guides, focusing on two northern birding hotspots: MICHIGAN and NEW JERSEY. New Jersey, a favourite among birders, is home to urban birds, suburban birds, and shore birds, while Michigan provides the opportunity to view glorious birds of the northland and Great Lakes areas. The variety and beauty of the bird populations in these regions make them popular destinations for birding trips, but the success and enjoyment of a trip often depends on the quality of the birding guide. National Geographic Field Guide to Birds provides affordable, portable, reliable region specific information, perfect for the novice or experienced birder. Each guide features 150 specimens, grouped by family with quick-reference alphabetical and colour-coded indexes that provide easy ways to identify a bird quickly. Each entry has a vivid photograph showing the bird in its native habitat. On the facing page, a list of bulleted points confirms at a glance the bird's identity.
