“The Warbler Guide” by Tom Stephenson and Scott Whittle
“I’ve been quite impressed with the thoroughly detailed “The Warbler Guide” by authors Tom Stephenson and Scott Whittle. With over 550 pages and over 1000 color photographs, graphs and a plethora of information in sonograms. This guide covers all about US and Canada warblers practically from “head to tail” If identification of warblers was a bit confusing before with this guide will be the end of that!. Every one of the 56 warblers are depicted at different angles in vivid color separately and in comparison grid to get every little difference between them. I believe that showing the tail shape and under-tail plumage a smart idea because it helps for a positive identification even if you don’t get the total picture of the warbler. I’ll keep this guide close to me and make my warbler identification a lot more simple.”
