For Adults

Peterson First Guide to Birds of North America Peterson First Guide to Birds of North America / by Roger Torey Peterson. -- Chapters Pub., April 1998
ISBN 0395906660 (paperback) [about $5]

Of the First Guide, Utah birder Dave Thompson ([email protected]) writes:

"The Peterson First Guide to Birds of North America @ about 4.95, is a good start with most of the common and esp feeder birds. It covers plenty and is not a "childrens'" book. Narrows down the Peterson field guide, which can be overwhelming to new birders."
