Thanks Rick.

Personally I would much rather see a coherent book with nice artistry covering the same groups for Mesoamerica south to Patagonia.

Geography

Yes, exactly; these taxa don't pose great identification problems in the US and Canada, and it would be far more helpful to have people spend their time and energy on working out the challenges in the rest of the hemisphere.

How strange that Dave Beadle, a very accomplished illustrator, should get involved in a photographic guide.

Beadle guides

Yes, he's a very fine painter, but the lead author on two photographic guides now, this one and (also with Rising) the sparrow guide.

I was also disappointed with this one. One of the first things I noticed - just one pic of Crimson-collared Grosbeak. And it was a not very good pic of the female. Come on!
Skip this one. The Hummingbird, Sparrow, and Shorebird photo guides in this series are very much worthwhile, so hopefully this is just an abberation.

edit: of course I meant Crimson-collared Grosbeak, not Tanager
