I thought it would be nice/interesting to see what the community’s current favorite field guides are. As an aspiring amateur generalist I have lots of field guides but I want to know, what’s on your bookshelf and getting a lot of attention recently?
My current favorite in rotation (2018-2019):
Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America
Feel free to add what you like as long as it’s field-guide related. Letting us know if it’s something that you’d recommend to novices vs. pros, too heavy to actually carry in the field or not, new editions/ updates or anything else that could be useful would be welcomed and appreciated too, I’m sure.
Thanks, happy observing!
