Reviews

[May 27, 2017] The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has introduced their All About Birds Pocket Guide Series, including 15 new titles, all published by Waterford press and the Cornell Group. The series is designed for regions, including such titles as Feeder Birds of the Midwest. These are not books but folding pocket guides that are easy to use, carry in a pocket, fold open at a moment?s notice and are quite weather-proof. The feeder birds guide has 40 colored bird illustrations and lists the food types most preferred by each species. Orioles come to platform nectar feeders, for example, and so do ruby-throated hummingbirds. -- Jerry Davis * Wisconsin State Journal *
[May 31, 2017] The Cornell Lab of Ornithology published a useful series of All About Birds pocket guides in May. It was developed to inspire and support beginning birdwatchers. Each of the 13 folding pocket guides keys in on a particular aspect of birding such as Backyard Birds of Eastern and Central North America, Birding 101, and Right Bird, Right House. Some guides relate to other parts of the continent but many of them are useful to us. They can just slip into your pocket and I like the fact they are weather resistant. -- Paul Nicholson * The London Free Press *
[May 12, 2017] There?s a new 15-guide series to help beginning birders available from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Complete with detailed species information, photos, illustrations and maps, the titles cover a wide range of topics including Birding 101 and Gardening for Birds. Watching and feeding birds is one of the fastest growing hobbies in North America. Experts at the Cornell Lab are hoping that the guides not only help beginners learn about birds but encourage them to do what they can to protect and enhance bird habitat. -- Kevin Naze * Green Bay Gazette *

[June 20, 2017] We all have indelible memories of positive first-time experiences. If you are enamored of the natural world, there?s a good possibility that some of yours are connected with your early use of field guides. Looking over The Cornell Lab of Ornithology?s All About Birds Pocket Guide Series (recently released and published in collaboration with Waterford Press and the Cornell Lab Publishing Group), memories arose of my childhood and adolescent engagement with field guides. Field guides supercharged my interest in nature and the awe that I have for it. They increased my knowledge about animals I saw or hoped to observe. -- Steven Brodsky * delcoculturevultures.com *
[May 15, 2017] The last thing you want to carry on a hike is a heavy bird book. Save the weight for trail snacks. The All About Birds Pocket Guide Series brings 15 new birding titles published in collaboration with Waterford Press and the Cornell Lab Publishing Group. The pocket guides are light, thin and easy to slip in a pocket or pack. The guides offer detailed species information, photos, illustrations, and maps. The titles cover a wide range of topics for everyone who is curious about birds ? from Birding 101 to Nests & Eggs of North American Backyard Birds. As a birdwatcher and a duck hunter, I like the Dabbling and Diving Ducks series for quick identification. There?s also Sea Ducks and Others if you?re into sea kayaking and want to ID birds. -- Pete Zimowsky * GetOutdoorsNorthwest *
