“Bird Coloration is a highly entertaining and educational book that should appeal to bird watching hobbyists and professional ornithologists alike.” –South Dakota Bird Notes
The information presented here is, in a word, fascinating…Hill wrote this volume for non-professionals, especially birders. He did a commendable job in making a very complicated, technical topic not only readable, but also enjoyable. ..The topics presented here are incredibly interesting.” www.birderslibrary.com
“This fascinating book, one of the first non-academic works on bird coloration and plumage,
uses more than 200 color photographs and 100 drawings to illustrate Hill’s authoritative-yet-accessible text.” –Alaska Airlines magazine
“Bird Coloration is a fascinating read for the birder who wants to understand a little more about the world birds see and why certain birds are colored the way they are. You don’t need to be a scientist to enjoy this book.” –Surfbirds.com (http://surfbirds.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6669)
“The photography is excellent and the drawings are just plain beautiful.” –aroundanchorage blog
