Review Roundup

Sorry for the late post, hopefully I didn’t miss many reviews from last month.

A while back the American Birding Association announced that it would no longer be publishing book reviews in Birding, its flagship magazine, in favor of posting them on its new blog. I wasn’t too sure about that. These were consistently the best reviews around, written by very knowledgeable (dare I say “famous”) birders, and were the first thing I read in every issue of Birding. It was my goal to one day have a review published in this magazine. I was concerned that the quality of the reviews would decline after the change. After all, anyone can post reviews online (I should know). But I’m happy to say that my fear was unfounded. For proof, just read the three reviews on the ABA Blog linked below. Seriously, you should read them. But don’t stop there, the other reviews here are also worth reading. These are some of the best bird book reviews you’re going to find. Enjoy.

Here are some bird book reviews from the last month to check out. (Happy Star Wars day!)

This edition of Review Roundup is much later than usual, as I’ve been spending much of my free time transcribing notes and entering data from my Peru trip. But now that I’m done, I can get on with other things…like actually reading and reviewing books :)

Wow, lots of shiny reviews this month.

Here are the bird book reviews from elsewhere last month. But first, here’s a great list of the best bird books of 2013.

Not many reviews last month. But I can’t say anything, I didn’t do much over the holidays either!

Here are the bird book reviews that I found last month.

Not as many bird book reviews last month, but some very good ones.

The month started slow, but then picked up nicely.
