Peterson Field Guide
to Western Birds

A Review

by Diane Porter

Peterson West Field GuideA Field Guide to Western Birds : A Completely New Guide to Field Marks to All Species Found in North America West of the 100th Meridian and North of Mexico - Third Edition; Roger Tory Peterson; Paperback.

This was an excellent field guide, especially for the beginning birder. However, it is now out of date, the last revision having been published in 1990.

We no longer carry this as a regular product. However, we can special order it for you if you want it for its historical interest. Please phone us at 800-779-7256 or shoot us an email.

We continute to carry Peterson's Eastern field guide, which has been updated more recently. Indeed, we highly recommend this volume. It would be an good choice as a first field guide for a beginning birder.
