book reviews from living bird magazine - spring 2008

subscribe to Living Bird magazine

Every destination in Fifty Places to Go Birding Before You Die is home to somebody, but you would probably have to be a multimillionaire to see them all: the book covers prime locations in Ecuador, Greenland, Madagascar, New Guinea, and Trinidad, not to mention Sub-Antarctic islands, Ohio, and New Mexico’s famed Bosque del Apache. It is a beautifully produced book that I will probably keep for the photographs alone—the Helmet Vanga and the Ribbon-tailed Astropia are worth the price of admission by themselves. Anyone can visit at least one place, and you might get lucky; a trip on other business allows me to confirm that “Kazakhstan is one of the best places in the world to see Ibisbills.”
