"Superbly enhanced with more than 450 full-color wildlife photographs . . . an efficient, effective, fail-safe way to easily and confidently identify nests and eggs. This is a 'must' reference and resource for biologists, ornithologists, naturalists, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in Alaska wildlife."—

"This field guide is a wonderful reference for nests and eggs and as a source of natural history information about these amazing birds."—Susan Sharbaugh, Ph.D., Senior Scientist, Alaska Bird Observatory, Fairbanks, Alaska

"This guide has been an invaluable resource in the field since it was first published. Our crews—both novice and experienced birders—have been using it to successfully identify nests on the North Slope. The egg guide and breast feather photos are especially useful. I wouldn't want to be out in the field without it."—Nora Rojek, Fish and Wildlife Biologist, USFWS, Fairbanks, Alaska
