This book was published at the same time as “Bird Dictionary and Note Book, Land Birds of Eastern North America.” It allowed ornithology enthusiasts to compile their observations made during ornithology excursions. Even though the book only featured black and white drawings and some descriptive information on the species, it was not designed for bird identification. It complemented the “Bird Guide Part 2, Land Birds East of the Rockies,” which was aimed to help people to identify birds in their natural environment.

For more information, consult the presentation “Bird Dictionary and Note Book, Land Birds of Eastern North America.”
