‘An excellent book covering every aspect of finches, including feeding mechanisms, roosting, breeding behaviour, moulting and migration. Such a wealth of information has been put together in this volume that it is bound to remain a standard work on the finches for a long time to come.’
‘A bird monograph which improves on all others in its breadth and depth of treatment. The lives and destinies of the finches are shown in clear and fascinating perspective as never before.’
Eastern Daily Press
‘As comprehensive and well organised as one would expect of the excellent New Naturalist series.’
