"Looking through the book, as casual birder or serious ornithologist, is a deep pleasure, a celebration of the winged creatures in the world around us, from swifts to stilts to storks, falcons, owls, and doves, to grebes and loons and pelicans."---Nina MacLaughlin, The Boston Globe
"[A] tour de force. . . . This book needs to be on the shelf of all Maine birders."---Herb Wilson, Portland Press Herald
"The book is an exhaustive resource for researchers and birders . . . [and is] also a pleasure to page through for anyone who delights in woods, waters, and wildlife."---Will Grunewald, Down East
"[A] magisterial testament: to a man with a vision, to the confraternity of Maine ornithologists, to the amazing avian diversity of this state."---Thomas Urquhart, Central Maine
"These chapters easily could be read and enjoyed by anyone with a serious interest in ornithology, regardless of location. . . . This rich presentation of the past, present, and future of Maine birdlife is a fitting memorial to Peter Vickery who devoted so much of his life to this project."---Jim Williams, Star Tribune
"This remarkable book could literally change the way state bird publications are prepared." * Birding Wire *
"'Monumental', says Kenn Kaufman, and who am I to disagree. . . . Every birder in Maine will want to savour this book and any other reader will want, like me, to visit Maine."---Bo Beolens, Fat Birder
"[A] remarkable guide that birders will rely on for decades to come." * Northeastern Naturalist *
