Reviews

The hefty hardcover tome, which covers 91 species of passerines (perching birds) is crammed with information in text, graphs, charts and full-colour photos. The third in a series of four volumes on the province's avian life, the extensively researched reference work is a book to be studied and perused and admired for its thorough treatment of bird life. -- Anne Sullivan * Vancouver Courier *
