I highly recommend Cornell Labs "Guide to Bird of North America".  This link
will take you to one webpage with info - you can order online or find this
in many local birding stores.


The ability to look at the bird while listening to the songs/calls has been
a great help to me.  In addition to all the attributes of a field guide
there is a comparison feature that allows you to side-by-side compare
pictures and calls for similar species.  The quiz feature - which allows you
to take either standard quizzes or ones you set up yourself (by state,
habitat, etc.) is a great boon to learning new species.  Before I visit a
new area I set mine up for birds of just that state and study, then quiz
