Are you from Olathe East? Because this event is over for everyone else in the state... I could help you if you want, we want a good showing from KS at Nationals...Hi everyone! Just a quick question. Do any of you guys know the difference between the National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America and National Geographic Complete Birds of North America? Which one would you recommend? We've been using the Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Birds paired with the Peterson's Field Guide. While it's taken us pretty far, the Audubon Field Guide is pretty much hit-or-miss when it comes to information. Plus, it doesn't have around 10 of the birds on our list. So if anyone has any suggestions about which field guide I can replace it with, I will be really grateful! I've looked at the Ornithology wiki page and am leaning towards the National Geographic one(s) (hence my first question) but any feedback would be great! I just want one with more information on distinctive behaviors while including the nesting, eggs, habitat, and interesting information that Audubon has.
P.S. While I'm at it, how is the Smithsonian guide?
Sorry for the wall of text D;
I suggest not using the National Geographic and the Peterson together, because both of them are ID books. You might need one that has habitat/nesting/behavior info.Right. And thanks!
@kjs: Wohooo! I didn't see your post. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. From what you've said, I guess I'll use the NG's complete edition then. And we have to keep Peterson because my partner refuses to part with that book xD I'll probably buy/check out Sibley's bird behavior book and write down missing info on the NG margins. Hopefully it'll work out!
One last question, does NG's complete edition include all the birds on the National list?
