I just picked up a copy of Peterson-5. It is larger than the standard
peterson guide with the flexi-binding at $22.00. The preface says 85
plates have had birds added or modified, 59 plates are from the 4th
edition and 7 plates are totally new. The thumb-nail range maps next to
text are useful but some with vision problem will have to go to the full
size range maps at the back of the book. It still has the Ivory-billed
Woodpecker with the note:" unsubstantiated reports still persist."
