New NYC Field Guide

Author Leslie Day has written a new field guide for New York City called "Field Guide to the Neighborhood Birds of New York City". This well written and beautifully illustrated guide is not intended to be an exhaustive resource of all the species recorded in the city's five boroughs, more like an introduction to the more common residents, migrants and breeding birds. It covers 90 of the birds species most likely to be encountered around the Big Apple. Geared more towards beginner and intermediate birders, it's a lovely publication that would be a nice addition to anyone's nature library regardless of skill level.

Full disclosure: I did the species accounts fact checking for the author:
