Editorial Reviews

Minnesota Star-Tribune
Another in the excellent series of bird identification books issued by Princeton University Press. The text, by David Beadle and J.D. Rising, covers the basics of biology, identification, molts, vocalization and distribution of 46 species. The 200-plus photographs show most plumages as they vary by sex, age, and season. The photo captions point out salient identification features and the range maps are large enough to actually be useful

British Columbia Birds - John Vooys
Tanagers, Cardinals, and Finches of the United States and Canada is a beautiful addition to any birder's library. Although it is not designed as a field guide it would be an excellent book to consult before going out in the field and for review after having been in the field. I recommend it heartily and enjoyed it immensely.
