The Audubon Society Field Guide to Birds is what I use. Here in the US, there is an Eastern version and a Western version. Peterson's also has a field guide.

Looks like you have a nice shot of a Northern Mockingbird. Wiki says this is the state bird of Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi,Tennessee and Texas.

Yep, I just put out some grapes to try to attract the mockingbirds around my subdivision. You've got a beauty there Jay T.
I might throw out 1 more book for birding that I like and that would be Sibley's Field Guide (I use the Eastern version so obviously there's a Western version too). I grew up w/Petersen but like Sibley a little better.
