Winner of a 2014 National Outdoor Book Award in Nature Guidebooks Second Place for the 2013 BB/BTO Best Bird Book of the Year, British Birds and the British Trust for Ornithology Honorable Mention for the 2013 PROSE Award in Single Volume Reference/Science, Association of American Publishers "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 "The Warbler Guide is a fine book crammed with photographs, tips, expert advice, innovation and information designed to help identify a unique and beautiful set of birds."--Phil Slade, Another Bird Blog "Fantastic and, yes, ground-breaking... There will be no birder north of the Rio Grande who would turn down this book. There will be few who intend to visit North America that would not want to spend time familiarising themselves with the Wood Warblers, and there is no better way for them than to open these pages and get lost in their cornucopia of detail... Everything from sonograms to seasonal variations, confusion species to aging and sexing and with pretty detailed distribution maps as well. The term 'tour de force' sits well upon its wide shoulders."--Fatbirder "The Warbler Bible has come forth! This is easily the most comprehensive and fantastic warbler specific guide covering North American Warblers. I am amazed and impressed with each of its features... [A] must-have book."--Robert Mortensen, Birding is Fun "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 "Thoroughly detailed... I'll keep this guide close to me and make my warbler identification a lot more simple."--H.J. Ruiz, Avian 101 "The Warbler Guide is a must-have book for every birder. It is comprehensive, easy-to-use, and absolutely gorgeous."--Eddie Callaway, Birdfreak.com "Stupendous... Each of the 56 species accounts contain at least a dozen photographs, emphasizing various plumage variations--in all, over 1000 stunning color photos grace the book... One of the unique features of this book is that many of these photos are taken from below, which is how you really see warblers in the field... This relatively inexpensive book will aid birders of all abilities in identifying the warblers of America."--Dan Tallman's Bird Blog "The Warbler Guide is Music to My Eyes! ... By the coming fall migration The Warbler Guide 'will' be considered the ultimate, must-have guide for any birder serious about identifying the 'butterflies of the avian world.'"--Jerry Jourdan, Jerry's Birding/Digiscoping Blog "There's never been an ID guide quite like this one. It's as if the publisher told the authors to produce a book on warbler identification that includes everything a birder might ever need. But don't be misled by my enthusiasm for The Warbler Guide. It will not make identifying warblers easy, it just makes it possible. It's still up to every birder to find, see and hear the birds bef
