Editorial Reviews

Another Bird Blog
Anyone who birds regularly in New Jersey or neighbouring states should not only study this book in depth but also keep it side by side with their standard field guide to Eastern North America. . . . The Birds of New Jersey is an object lesson in how to produce a book of this type. It is well researched, succinct but detailed, easily accessible and extremely logical in the arrangement of the information.

After looking through The Birds of New Jersey: Status and Distribution by William J. Boyle, I was reminded of what a great state New Jersey is for birds. . . . The book is likely the best of its kind in presenting the birding locales, prevalence, and status of birds for a single state. It is easy to navigate and concise. For any birder living in, near, or visiting New Jersey, this is one book to have!

Here is a beautiful book with a simple purpose, providing up to date status and distribution information for birds in New Jersey and the surrounding region. The Birds of New Jersey: Status and Distribution by William J. Boyle is a real winner in my book. It doesn't try to be a one stop bird book, rather it finds a small niche and really nails it.
Birdwatch
This comprehensive but portable paperback will be the ideal accompaniment for any stay in the state, and records of species like Long-billed Curlew will excite the interest of the British rarity-hunter.
Wildlife Activist
The Birds of New Jersey is a must for New Jersey birders. And it will be very useful for birders from other states or countries that visit the Garden State.

Well written and concise, the work can be recommended as a quick and easy way to determine when and where each New Jersey bird species should occur and will be useful for both amateur birdwatchers and professional ornithologists.
