    This book is THE best bird book for Washington. Even though it's old, I've never found one that has the same level of pictures and information so easy to understand as this book. I'd always used my parent's copy, but I finally decided to buy myself one and complete my collection.

    This is an excellent book for the purpose intended, identifying exactly what kind of birds are at my bird feeder. Since the book is limited to what I will likely see in Renton WA. this is much more useful than a big bird book with all North America species listed. Now I know those small brown birds are Chestnut-backed Chickadees, the gray ones are Black-capped Chickadees, etc. I did dock it 1 star for using a brief description and not including a full picture of a Hairy Woodpecker, which is often mistaken for the similar but smaller Downy Woodpecker. Small complaint, as I would have no clue as to what either bird was without this guide. Get this book and you will be a back yard expert in short order.

    Bought this book as a gift for someone who lives in Seattle, and I like how this book is so specific to that area. Personally, I would've preferred photos over drawings, but since the description states illustrations, I knew what I was buying.

    Great little quick reference guide for backyard birds in the Pacific Northwest. Makes a great gift for new "birders," is a handy size and accurate in descriptions and info.

    This was a gift for a friend in the Seattle area and she absolutely loves it. I did not get to see it as was sent directly to her but if she likes it, I am sure it would be a 5.
