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 
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 
Again - Thank You to everyone for your posts!
