"Valuable, as both a reference and as a 'browsing' book." –Bird Watchers Digest
“Like everything published by the National Geographic Society, it's first rate…many of the bird illustrations painted by the foremost birding artist Jonathan Alderfer…What sets [it] apart is the inclusion of photographs, lists of preferred foods and nesting habitats, seasonal range maps, and keys to identification -- all tailored toward the backyard birder. –Plain Dealer (Cleveland)
“A great book to give to those backyard birdwatchers in your life--or any friend or neighbor who might appreciate the birds in their yard…attractively designed and chock-full of useful and interesting information…provides many ways to approach, identify, and enjoy birds. Each section includes noteworthy features that make it not only beautiful but useful.” –The Birdchaser
“A handy-sized, easy-to-use tool for backyard birding…The information on each species is superb…fascinating nuggets…” –Birdfreak.com
