"Visually stunning and expertly presented, [Pacific Flyway] spotlights bird migrations along the Pacific coast. In admiring prose, the authors marvel at seagulls, ducks, snow geese, and other 'feathered ambassadors.' Readers who want to learn about bird migrations will find this volume educational, while those simply in search of escape will find it a stimulating and scenic journey."
--Publishers Weekly

"This lovely book focuses on the remarkable migration of shorebirds, seabirds, and waterfowl along the Pacific Flyway, made vivid through more than 120 images from internationally acclaimed photographers."
--BirdWatching Magazine

"[T]his gem is packed with 120 fantastic photos including a jaw-dropping picture of a bald eagle right on the tail of a fish-carrying blue heron. Imagine Top Gun but with feathers and talons. Joining the awesome images is interesting and accessible text. Fun facts like Bristle-thighed curlews start out with fat loads averaging 42 per cent of their body weight for Pacific flights of 4,000 to 10,000 km, or more make this a perfect book for parents to read with kids."
