Index to the Sibley Guide to Birds

The tabs wear better if covered with clear contact paper or plastic tape. Note: To save this file to your desktop, right-click and select "Save Target As…"

Index to the National Geographic 3 Field Guide
Have you ever missed identifying a bird while you were thumbing through your field guide trying to find the right page? Here's an idea—Dave Mellinger has created a one-page index to the Third Edition of the National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America. This index can be cut out and pasted on the back cover of the field guide for quick reference. Good birding!
