Downloadable Quick Finders from The Warbler Guide

You asked, we listened.

The minute people got their hands on The Warbler Guide by Tom Stephenson and Scott Whittle, they started asking if we might provide downloadable versions of the Quick Finder section. Thank you for all the great suggestions!

We are very pleased to offer these image files for people to download, laminate, and keep in their backpack. They are incredibly useful in the field because they present a quick snapshot of every North American species of warbler for side-by-side comparison.

So pick your favorite format below — JPG or PDF — and make sure you pick up a copy of The Warbler Guide to confirm your field IDs.

Update: You can also download a complete set of the PDFs in a zip file or as a zip file of JPGs if you prefer.

Update: Take your Warbler ID skills to the next level with this free tip sheet on aging and sexing warblers. [added 10-4-2013]
