Does anyone know if we're allowed to put printed labels and/or sticky notes inside??
Thank you! :mrgreen:

It says it can be tabbed, so I would presume that's what it means.

Those are the families. The species are in black and belong to the family assigned above them. For example, the Black-bellied Whistling-Duck
(Dendrocygna autumnalis) is in the family of Anatidae and the order of Anseriformes.
When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.

The Audobon has more information, the peterson has identification tips. It depends on what your weak on: notes or id?

Does anyone know if we can have sticky notes in our field guide (and could we possibly write on our sticky notes)? Thanks! :mrgreen:

So, yes I think you could write on them. I mean they wouldn't really serve another purpose if it wasn't organized, right?

Last year they let people put sticky notes in their book for Reptiles and Amphibians and since they are very similar I would think that they would let us.

Another book that I found really useful, (for me at least.) Is the Encyclopedia of North American Birds... It has all of the technical stuff, pix, and tons of info.

Re: ornithology guides.

The Sibley Guide to Birds. There are actually 4 Sibley bird books (2 field guides, the big guide, and behavior), but I used the Sibley Guide to Birds in 2002 and it was fantastic. I think it has the best illustrations and had everything on the list.
