This is a resource to gaze at and consider, especially the arresting views of hummingbirds, warblers, shorebirds, and the northern gannet....

I'm not sure what I like most about this book: the mix of essays by John Fitzpatrick, Jonathan Franzen, Peter Marra, and others, along with an introductory poem by Margaret Atwood, or the 225 stunning photos by Owen Deutsch.... Ok, it's all of the above.--Matt Mendenhall "BirdWatching "
Bringing Back the Birds is exceptionally beautiful, a joy to page through, and makes an unforgettable giftbook as well as a wonderful addition to public library collections. Highly recommended.--Midwest Book Review

Owen Deutsch's photographs drive this impressive publication that delivers conservation messages that are so poignant and important that this volume can be considered a new standard for every birder, and every 'American' from Canada to Chile, to digest and appreciate.--The Birding Wire
Beyond its well-crafted essays and lovely photographs, a beauty of Bringing Back the Birds: Exploring Migration and Preserving Birdscapes Throughout the Americas is its compositional richness and diversity.
