For Young Birder's Guide to Birds of North America:

“Kid-tested and kid-approved (Bill Thompson III's son and daughter and their elementary school classmates helped select the content), Young Birders is perfect for beginners of any age as well. Thompson has left out the minutia and selected the most important starter information and complemented it with color photographs, black-and-white drawings and a map.” – The Herald (Everett, WA)

“This is a great reference and great way to get young people interested in bird watching and other outdoor adventures. It's also a great activity to fill the long summer days ahead.” – The Ledger (FL)


For Identifying and Feeding Birds:

"This is the best backyard bird-feeding book I've seen... If you have no guides to bird feeding or the identification of birds likely to be seen in your yard, this could be the only book you ever need."—Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"The photos are fabulous, the information accurate, and Thompson's writing succinct and entertaining."—Cleveland Plain Dealer


For Young Birder's Guide to Birds of Eastern North America:

"Offers an excellent introduction to one of the most popular activities on the planet . . . will teach kids to fly."—Sacramento Bee

"An ­excellent resource for young and old beginning birders, The Young Birder's Guide has the potential to affect lives by getting us engaged, outside and back to nature."—Lexington Herald Leader


For Identify Yourself:

"This new volume will delight and aid...this is an important resource to add to most public and academic collections. Expect it to fly off the shelf."—STARRED Library Journal

"Thompson has a good sense of how a beginning or intermediate birder should approach these challenges, so he doesn't make it complicated. He explains terms clearly. He writes simply and directly, with touches of humor and humility.... The book is well illustrated by Julie Zickefoose, an excellent artist who happens to be married to Thompson. Together, this couple has created a book that is informative, entertaining to read and deserves a slot on your library shelf."—Minneapolis Star Tribune

What a new birder needs is a field guide that shows most of the birds she’s going to see—so that she’s not frustrated—but that doesn’t overwhelm with rarities she almost certainly won’t see. This is that book. Covering 300 of the most common birds in the United States and Canada, this guide has just the right amount of information about how to identify birds, where and when to look for them, what they sound like, and how they behave.

The New Birder’s Guide is based on the popular Young Birder’s Guide, with the same easy-to-understand descriptions, maps, clear photos, drawings of common and interesting behaviors, and fun “Wow!” facts for each bird. New in this guide is expanded information on birding gear, tips on improving birding skills, and why some “common knowledge” about birds just isn’t true.
