Hello Everyone, I am quite new to this list and am learning a great deal reading the posts. This last weekend I had many birds at my feeders - Purple Finches, Gold Finches, White and Red Breasted Nuthatches, Juncos, Red Bellied Woodpeckers, Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers, Cardinals, and Turkeys. On Saturday I saw a Bald Eagle at both Thousand Islands in Kaukauna and Jefferson Park in Menasha along with many mallards and Canada Geese. I go for a walk every morning and on Saturday saw a pileated woodpecker (my first in Outagamie County) and a small flock of snow buntings. I have also entered my sightings from the last few years (a small modest list) into ebird and I really like the features of that site! I have a quick question that if someone could answer for me would be very helpful. I have the standard field guides that I use for my birding activities. I would like to get a coffee table book of birds for my home. Is there a "standard" that is like an encyclopedia of birds of the world? I have a 15 year old boy who is my birding partner. I could see a book like this getting a great deal of use in our home. If you have a suggestion on this if you could please back channel me at dsachs1962@xxxxxxxxxxxxx it would be greatly appreciated. Again - Thank You to everyone for your posts!
