Hi Ian,

You can't go past Sibley, in my opinion. Also, there is a Sibley for Western
North America, which is slightly thinner (and lighter) than the full Sibley.
Also, if you're a smartphone app person, Sibley has an iPhone and Android
app using exactly the same software as the Morcombe app uses in Australia.

You'll probably need a bird finder too. National Geographic has an OK one -
I'm not at home, but will check when I get there to see which one we have

You *MUST* do a whale-watching trip out of Victoria. Not just for the
whales, but for the possibility of seeing Tufted Puffins and Rhinoceros

I'm shortly heading off to Vancouver Island - Seattle - Mt Rainier area for
three weeks.

I'm wondering about birding field guides for that part of the world.  Budget
and space means only one field guide, (or maybe two!).

 I've done some research and there is Sibleys Field Guide, plus other such
as field guides focusing on the Puget Sound, or Washington State.  So I'm
now confused!

Any advice much appreciated.
