"Irresistible to bird-watchers and nature lovers." -- Booklist, 4/1/98

"It is hard to categorize these books. They are detailed life histories, not quite monographs but far more than typical one-species books for general audiences. If they were larger, and hardback, they would be coffee-table books, too well-written and too informative to be merely pretty picture books. Whatever they should be called, they are successful and should be read. I look forward to others in the series." -- Eirik A. T. Blom Bird Watchers Digest, March/April 98
