How to find the right field guide for your birding interests

Field guides help identify birds by details about the individual species with pictures, descriptions, and behaviors. A good field guide can help you learn the bird basics and species in your area. A printed, physical field guide is a must, even in a digital world. 


Field guides follow a standard layout. A typical page will have the right side showing illustrations or photographs of birds with important field marks. The left side has species name and description with details like size, behavior, range and habitat. Review the top recommended field guides and choose the fit that's best for you.
