Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Grove, a former staff member of National Geographic magazine, here assembles a spectacular collection of 188 color photographs that show birds in remarkable detail. He organizes the text by informal groups: songbirds, raptors, gamebirds, specialists (e.g., hummingbirds and woodpeckers), shore- and water-birds. He offers tidbits of information and lore seldom seen in more conventional books. He tells us that more mourning doves are shot than any other game bird, that a woodpecker's tongue may be four times the length of its bill. Grove discusses the beak adaptations of wading birds and describes how raptors locate and capture prey. The text is lucid, but it is the photographs that capture and hold our attention. (Nov.)
Library Journal
This oversized volume contains more than 200 bird photographs, many full- or double-page, on quality paper. Using informal groupings, such as "Game Birds," Grove (Preserving Eden, LJ 6/1/92) organizes the works of seven noted wildlife photographers into six chapters with an accompanying text. Though not directly related to the photographs, the informative text is filled with interesting tidbits about birds and is fun to read. Photo captions are adequate but lack data regarding season and location-a minor flaw. The raison d'tre for this work is the stunning photography. The birds are captured at their peak of beauty, and the photographers have created a wonderful sense of presence for each picture. Bird and nature lovers will lose themselves in these pages. Highly recommended for general collections.-Frank Reiser, Nassau Community Coll., Garden City, N.Y.
From Barnes & Noble
More than 200 breathtaking color photos provide a rare opportunity to see herons, hawks, owls and other birds up close in their natural habitats and to discover little-known secrets about nesting, parenting, and other survival techniques. You'll see them diving into the water or soaring above the clouds, eyeing their next meal or protecting their young. And enjoy a front-row seat to some of themost amazing performances in courtship and hunting that nature has to offer. 8 1/2" x 13"
