This is a review to an interesting book titled Rare Birds of North America, authored by Steve N. G. Howell, Ian Lewington and Will Russell.
The book is a detailed explanation of migrations patterns, places where birds occur and a clear description of rare species. With a total of 262 species that are found in USA and Canada.
For any bird watcher, bird photographer or Ornithologist this book can be very helpful especially when helps you make an easy visual comparison with the 275 illustrations and perhaps find out that you’ve seen or photographed a rare species. I couldn’t help to notice that some of these rare birds have resemblance to birds already in our own list of birds.
I believe that many of us will get very curious to see if we have a rare bird in our lists. Being myself a photographer I will keep this book handy when I get any doubts about the ID or the appearance of a bird I have photograph.
