The arrows work best when you’re studying a page of similar species; looking at the page of Kingbird images in the Eastern/Central guide, for example, one notes the pale gray breast of Western Kingbird, the white tipped tail of Eastern Kingbird, the large bill of Gray Kingbird, the shorter and smaller bill of Couch’s Kingbird (head only), and the bright yellow underparts of Tropical Kingbird. When she is not birding or working on her nature photography, Donna travels to Florida, where she attempts to turn her young nephews into birders (so far, they are fisherman who send her photos of birds), to Los Angeles to visit her writer daughter and son-in-law, or somewhere wonderfully new and birdy.
