    Review ------ "[A]n essential reference."---Neil Glenn, Bird Watching "Together with linked, on-line resources, the dedicated reader of this book will learn how to be an expert in interpreting sonograms and this skill naturally will lead to hearing and identifying more birds in the field. This is a book to tuck into your bag as you head outside with your binoculars. This is also a book to read in advance of the spring during the long winter months waiting for the first flush of spring and the first flock of spring warblers to alight in your neighborhood and your consciousness."---Ruth Joy, Journal of Field Ornithology "When I personally dove into Warbler identification (the species that helped bring me to birding in the first place! Could those colorful birds really be in my backyard in Central New Jersey?!) I pieced together multiple guides that had information on undertail covert colors and tail patterns, as well as song detail and plumage specification. I had to use multiple sources then for what this guide accomplishes itself. That, to be honest, is putting it mildly. . . . I obviously recommend this guide about as highly as I could and I look forward to utilizing it in my future birding adventures!"---Dan Murray, Birding in New Jersey "The Warbler Guide is a reference book which you will want to have on your desk, your night stand or in your car, for contained within its pages is more treasure than any birder could ever hope for. . . . Bravo to authors Tom Stephenson and Scott Whittle for raising the bar by which we judge specialty guides."---Wayne Mones, AudubonMagazine.org "This book is not so much a field guide as it is a course on warbler identification delivered in printed (or, in the case of the eBook, electronic) form. . . . If learning to identify warblers more effectively and accurately is something you wish to do, this is the book you need."---John Riutta, Bird Watcher's Digest "The only thing missing from this guide are the warblers themselves. Once you've picked up and browsed this book, you will be hooked."---Peter Kennerley, British Birds "A warbler feast for the eyes, the answer to the prayers of every birder who has seen a glimpse of yellow, black, and white and said, 'If only that leaf wasn't in the way, I'd know that warbler's name.'. . . The Warbler Guide, by Tom Stephenson and Scott Whittle, is not just another bird identification book. . . . The authors have thought long and hard about what makes an identification guide work and then approached it their own way. The auditory descriptions of bird song and chips, based on scientific analysis rather than a subjective translation of sound, present a very different approach to identifying birds by ear. The abundance of photographs, the plethora of charts and finding guides, all printed in brilliant color on lovely paper, the clarity of design, make this book a joy to look at and to use."---Donna Schulman, 10,000 Birds "[T]his is an essential tool. . . . It will also prove to be an essential reference for foreign birders when they return home with a notebook or memory card full of warblers to identify." (Bird Watching) "While I've been known to exaggerate for the sake of emphasis, I will swear under oath that my jaw literally dropped when I opened this book."---Kirby Adams, National Parks Traveler Magazine "The only way future warblers will stump you is if you don't read the book."

[A]nd yet not daunting to someone just starting to love the 'jewels of the bird world' and getting past the 'all I can see is their bellies because they're up in the treetops!' . . . I can't wait to introduce it to my Illinois Audubon chapter members!"―Darlene Fiske "The whole book has a refreshingly fresh approach. The authors and illustrator have put a lot of thought into how really to help us identify these birds. This is definitely not 'just another field guide'."―Mark Avery Read more ( javascript:void(0) ) See all Editorial Reviews ( /dp/product-description/0691154821/ref=dp_proddesc_0?ie=UTF8&n=283155&s=books&isInIframe=0 )
