Tessa's Nonfiction Book Review: National Geographic Pocket Guide: Birds of North America

While I give the little National Geographic Pocket Guide: Birds of North America four stars, be warned that this is not a field guide. Jacket coverIt does not even cover all common birds in any region. For instance, it covers four woodpecker species but completely leaves out the Hairy Woodpecker, which is a common enough species anywhere.
