The full Sibley has the best plates but its big. The National
Geographic guide is easier to carry, has decent plates and excellent
notes. Birders carried the Nat Geo until Sibley arrived, now it seems
to be mixed. If you had room, they're both good to have.

For the iPod/iPhone/iPad, the top two apps are the Sibley and iBird
Explorer. I have the later and it's outstanding. I've nothing against
the Sibley app, it just didn't seem to offer as much beyond the field
guide as iBird Explorer Pro.

There are also lots of specialized birds for specific families, such as raptors.
