About the Author:

Steve N. G. Howell has led birdwatching tours to Mexico since 1984. He is coauthor, with Sophie Webb, of A Guide to the Birds of Mexico and Northern Central America.

Review:

"At last a bird-finding guide for Mexico is on the bookshelves for birders who want to go to Mexico but do not know where to go.... With the help of this guide you can start, or add to, your own life list of Mexican birds."

(Charles "Red" and Louise Gambill Texas Birds)

"A thoroughly well-researched book.... An excellent sight guide to this bird-rich country.... This book is highly recommended."

(Birding World)

"I cannot imagine any reason why a birder contemplating independent travel in Mexico would not want this book close at hand.... Superb.... If I were a Minister of Tourism charged with encouraging birders to come to Mexico, I would award Howell a big medal. I'm not, so I'll just encourage every birder I know who likes to travel to buy this book and go to Mexico with it."

(Charles D. Duncan, Wings of the Americas, The Nature Conservancy, Portland, ME Birding)

"If you're planning a trip to Mexico and want to do a little birding on the side,... this book is a must.... Site descriptions, detailed maps, and lists of expected birds at each location make this book essential for any birder heading south of the border."

(Scott Shalaway The Wild Side)

"This guide will be useful... to the business traveler with only a morning to spare and to the serious birder planning a three-month trip across the country; this indispensable book tells where to go and what to look for."

(Indiana Audubon Quarterly)

"With the publication of this book, access to Mexico's nearly 1,000 species has been made immeasurably easier.... The information, reflecting the author's own travels in the country, is as complete as that found in the best bird finding guides anywhere.... If you are going to travel south of the border, take this book along."

(Eirik A. T. Blom Bird Watcher's Digest)
