One of the least expensive of all of the popular bird books is the Golden Field Guide. Just in one volume, it covers all of the birds in North America. This book is small enough to even fit into you pocket. Range maps are next to the text, and opposite the pictures of the birds. In the National Geographic Society Field Guide, it gives comprehensive descriptions of birds, including birds rare in their species. In western Alaska, and in the Dry Tortugas of Florida, you will find such birds. Because there is so much information found in this book, beginning birders may feel overwhelmed, so it might be best to start off small. Either way, having bird books, when on a bird expedition will definitely come in handy.
