Product Details

An essential write-in field companion for all levels of birders.

This indispensable birder's companion includes both ample space for on-site notes and a life list to be filled in by the legions of passionate birders who have bought Sibley's bestselling guides. Included are entries for the 923 species found in the United States and Canada, with space for recording where and when a bird was seen and for notes or memories about the sighting. At the back is a complete checklist of all the birds for building the life list.

Our Opinion: Yes, finally someone got it right! This is the Life List & Diary that we have been waiting for since the Cornell Lab's version went out of print over a decade ago. This book includes three important sections: Species Listing and Entries, Checklist, and Write-in Life List. The Species Listing includes the English species name, with status code, space for Date, Location, and Notes. The Checklist includes six columns to use as you wish, alongside English species names with status code. The Write-in Life List is a blank numbered list with space for 1,024 species. Get to work! The book also includes the ABA Code of Ethics and an index of English names. The book is spiral bound, with a heavy 'waterproof' cover and an attached elastic to hold the book closed. Now you can stuff all your maps, directions and notes in the book and keep it shut! The waterproof cover won't protect the book in a downpour, but water should bead off the cover itself. And all this wonderful information comes packed in a field-pocket-size: 7 3/4 x 5 1/4 x 1 inch. We're hooked, it's true. We highly recommend this book as your new permanent life list!
