From Booklist:

If present trends continue, Mr. Bluebird may not be sitting on anyone's shoulder. Loss of habitat, increased competition for food, and the poisons sprayed on lawns to make them green and pretty all threaten this songbird that is common only in the western hemisphere. In what amounts to a bluebird awareness book, Toops spotlights both the species' natural history and what certain private citizens are doing to ensure its future. The natural history chapters are pretty run-of-the-mill, but the nine small ones on what those citizens are doing are fascinating. Most of their activity involves installing boxes in which the birds may lay eggs and raise young; in many cases, this simple measure has lured the bluebird back to areas from which it has been absent for more than a half century. Color photos profusely illustrate the book, and because the bluebird is a very pretty, make it quite spectacular. Toops and those she profiles deserve a round of applause for trying to save the no-longer-so-common bluebird. Jon Kartman

Review:

Bluebirds evoke gentle and winning images; but how can we better understand their habits and habitats? Toops provides a fine natural history which blends close-up bluebird shots with reviews of their life cycles, interactions with humans, and threats to their survival. Included are tips on how to attract bluebirds; but the foundation of the book lies in its excellent photos and in-depth regional coverages of the bird. -- Midwest Book Review
