I also 2nd (or 3rd I guess) this line. I also have all of these books, all 
great guides. Paulson's Pacific Northwest guide is much more useful for us than 
the name would have you believe, as Chris mentioned.  A couple of other 
worthwhile, but less well-known guides are Shorebirds of North America, Europe, 
and Asia by Stephen Message and Don Taylor, a great and very portable book no 
photos just plates and Chandler's North Atlantic Shorebirds which is tiny and 
not as extensively illustrated as the others, but a great little book. I would 
also put The Shorebird Guide as the first one I usually go to when I am going 
to research something.

All the books Dean listed are good; I have all of them.  There is also a great 
guide to Shorebirds of the Pacific Northwest that essentially covers the whole 
country.  My only comment is that, in my opinion, the Shorebird Guide should be 
your primary resource, and the others all are complimentary to it, not the 
other way around.
