Product Details


“A lot has changed in the world since 1980, when the National Audubon Society last updated its bestselling field guide to the trees of North America. Even more so since 1995, when the organization last updated its field guide to the birds of North America. There couldn’t be a better time to update them than now: as climate change fuels a biodiversity crisis, we need every reminder we can get of the breadth and beauty of the planet’s flora and flauna.” —Jonathan Hahn, Sierra

“A book of high quality. It is attractive, well designed, user-friendly, well put together, durable. The cover, the paper, the printing and the color balance are as good as it gets (not a guarantee in publishing and printing). The binding seems strong and permanent, also not a given. I liked the color-coded margins for quick and easy reference. A minor thing maybe, but I love the ribbon page marker. Maybe it’s a throwback, but a nice touch for this old-fashioned reader . . . Despite an excellent text, the photographs are the heart and soul of Birds of North America. There are an amazing 3,500 high quality color photographs in these 907 pages.” —Clay Sutton, American Birding Association
“If you’ve ever wondered what birds show up in your backyard or which species you see when your family is on vacation, then this beautiful, freshly updated bird guide from the National Audubon Society is perfect for you.” —Portland Book Review

“Coffee table ready, a pleasure to browse in at will, and comprehensive enough to furnish a sense of real mastery. Keep [this] close at hand when reading nature writing for a richer, more stimulating exploration . . . Leave[s] the reader feeling more at home in the world” —Stefan Beck, Washington Examiner
“Impressive and informative . . . User-friendly . . . The consummate desk reference to North American birds, with high-quality authentic representations of avian species.” —Nan Schiller, Gardener’s Path
“Striking, comprehensive . . . A thorough guide that might inspire readers to become advocates for birds and their conservation . . . A must-have for birders and nature lovers.” —Dave Pugl, Library Journal (starred review)

“Impressive, scholarly . . . I see the new NAS/Knopf Trees of North America sitting alongside the ‘old’ Knopf Sibley Guide to Trees, whether on the back seat or bookshelf, as an inseparable set to be used with each other again and again.” —Clay Sutton, American Birding Association
“A very deep dive into the birding world.” —Rob Ripma, Birds & Blooms
