1) Beadle, David and Seabrooke Leckie. Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America. 2012. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Paperback: 611 pages. Price: $29.00 U.S.

SUMMARY: There are thousands of moth species in the northeast of North America, and while it might seem that they are all drab grays and browns, there is actually a startling variety. They come in a rainbow of colors, from brilliant oranges and pinks to soft greens and violets. There are moths with colorful leopardlike spots, and ones that look more like B-movie aliens; some that are as large as your hand, and others the size of a grain of rice.
     With helpful tips on how to attract and identify moths, range maps and season graphs showing at a glance when and where to find each species, and clear photographs that use the unique Peterson arrow system for easy identification, this guide provides everything an amateur or experienced moth-watcher needs.
     Sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation and the Roger Tory Peterson Institute
RECOMMENDATION: A MUST have for all North American moth-ers out there!
