This guide takes advantage of illustrations and photographs, so we get the best of both worlds. I appreciate that each photo is accompanied by explanation as well the state/province and month in which the image was made. Each North American species is given its own section within its family chapter. Each selection is really a celebration of each bird. This wonderfully readable guide is a book worth reading cover to cover, then you can use it for future reference. I give HAWKS in Flight one of the strongest recommendations I can possibly give. It is a must-have and must-read for every birder. Congratulations to Pete Dunne, David Sibley, and Clay Sutton and all their expert friends on this amazing accomplishment.
