Editorial Reviews

Booknews
It appears that some of these watercolor paintings are of nests, eggs and birds seen near the artist's California home; others seem to be based on the collections of the Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology and the California Academy of Sciences. The paintings are fairly large (the book is 15.25x11.5<">). Captions throughout provide common and scientific names, notes on nesting habits, and instructions for reproducing the colors used (e.g. Van Dyke brown, burnt sienna, and ivory black for the wren-like rushbird). Gretel Ehrlich provides the foreword. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
