1) Howell, Steve N. G. and Brian L. Sullivan. Peterson Guide to Bird Identification―in 12 Steps. 2018. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Hardbound: 152 pages. Price: $17.95 U.S.
PUBLISHER'S SUMMARY: Identifying birds can be overwhelming. Where and how do you start? The good news is that most people already know more than they realize about birds, which can greatly simplify the identification process.
Written in a helpful, conversational style and illustrated with numerous photos, this “12-step program” starts with the basics and builds logically into a manageable framework that enables anyone to get into, or get more out of, the world of watching, identifying, and enjoying birds.
RECOMMENDATION: Best for beginning and intermediate level birders.
