Bird Families of North America is new 2021 book, and a very handy guide that focuses on families and their shared traits. It increases understanding and makes bird identification easier than ever.
This guide takes readers beyond merely identifying birds to understanding them. Many birders can tell the difference between a White-eyed and Bell’s Vireo, but cannot begin to describe a vireo and what distinguishes members of this family from warblers or flycatchers. The “species by species” approach makes it difficult to appreciate birds for what they are: members of well-organized groupings united by common traits.
Putting the focus on families and their shared characteristics, makes bird identification easier and more meaningful.
