Rising's first-hand experience with the North American sparrows is apparent, especially so in his sections on voice, habits, and habitat. I highly recommend Sparrows of the United States and Canada to all birders and field ornithologists with any interest in these birds. It contains up-to-date information ... as well as some of the best available illustrations of this difficult-to-identify group of birds, and all at a very reasonable price. -- Guy McCaskie Birding The plates are, on balance, excellent, and the text is informative and easy to read. -- Jon L. Dunn Birding World The quality of the plates is excellent... I highly recommend this excellent book. -- Colin Bradshaw British Birds In the future, I doubt that I will head into the field without [this guide]... [The color plates] are beautiful, and they complement the text descriptions... This book offers North American birders all that they need and a little more. g Chilton, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada A birder's book in every sense of the word... [A] 'coming of age' of experienced birding...
