"... a unique combination of knowledge and skills to the task of synthesizing the expansive collection of avian climate change studies. Together, the authors bring a dynamic and colorful writing style as well as scientific and intellectual rigor to a topic that, at times, could risk being purely academic. Winged Sentinels [should bestow] an important spot on the bookshelves of ornithologists or those who simply care about birds."
Morgan W. Tingley, Journal of Field Ornithology
"Generously illustrated with colour photographs, the book is a fascinating insight into what climate change means for birds, and the potential consequences of ignoring these warning signs."
"This book is a thorough up-to-date review of their [birds] responses to climate change. I can recommend it to those who are concerned about global biodiversity and whose interest in 'global warming' extends beyond just the atmosphere."
Norman Elkin, Weather
"The authors' methodical, thorough style and the depressing preponderance of bad news for birds, and for the people who study and enjoy them, mean that this book is not an uplifting experience. However, the cataloging of what is and is not known about climate change and birds will make this book a valuable resource for those who would attempt to avert disaster. Highly recommended."
J. L. Hunt, Choice
"... this is a useful consideration of changes in bird biology with climatic change and well-illustrated with good examples. It would suit an undergraduate audience or interested and well-informed amateur naturalists."
