I bought the book because I saw it recommended here but unfortunately I have found It unhelpful. You cannot search based on construction or habitat and all the nest views are top down. So if you’re wondering who made a nest made of mud and grass in a tree fork on the edge of an urban woodland...you have to look through the whole book and even then you can’t identify it because you saw a side view and not top down.
I messaged the publisher and the good news is that they have a new updated version under contract. So save yourself the frustration and 20 bucks and wait for the new book to come out. Hopefully it will be user friendly.
