From the Inside Flap:

"The author of Club George has a seemingly insatiable appetite for close encounters with wildlife of all kinds, coupled with a commendable skill in recounting not only animal behavior, but also his personal reactions and reflections."- Robert W. Nero, author of Redwings Club George is a witty tale about one man's adventures with George, a particularly charismatic Red-winged Blackbird.

From the Back Cover:

Advance Praise for Club George "Club George is proof that a bird can inspire your life--even in New York City!"- E. J. McAdams, executive director of New York City Audubon Society "A good read and a great source of avian lore that should appeal to the fast-growing crowd of bird-watchers across the nation. That all this takes place in Central Park in the middle of Manhattan should be cause for beginning bird-watchers everywhere to take heart. As the saying goes: If you can do it in New York, you can do it anywhere. Levy shows the reader how."- Hope Ryden, author of America's Last Wild Horses "Now we know there is more than sex in the city--there are birds! A fun romp."- Bernd Heinrich, author of The Geese of Beaver Bog "Club George is not just a charming, playful, and very personal account of the development of a birder--it is much more. I enjoyed reading it very much, and I am proud of my honorary membership in Club George."- Ken Yasukawa, coauthor of Red-winged Blackbird (The Birds of North America series)
