"'Take this guide wherever you go,' [Day] implores readers in the introduction. And we hope many do, since it reveals a New York we long to see, the wild, beautiful city of birds known to Audubon, Chapman, and Griscom."

"An excellent guide for New York City residents. If you have any interest in the birds around you (and there are plenty of birds around you, even in NYC), this guide will really open your eyes."

"Day's deeply researched and richly illustrated Field Guide to the Neighborhood Birds of New York City will be indispensable to locals and tourists alike."

"Will fill a niche for beginning birders and backyard watchers in the northeastern US..."

"You don't have to live in or be visiting New York to enjoy this book."

"These three fabulous New York women have been to every park in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx, seeking out their feathered material. Their pooled talents have yielded a field guide that runs from Double-Crested Cormorants to Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers, revealing the richness of diversity in the lives of our fellow New Yorkers from the natural world."

"Overall, this guide is not just a source of information, but fosters an appreciation for the wildlife that surrounds us every day."

"Leslie Day provides a visually arresting and fascinating introduction to our city’s most common birds, including details on behavior and ecology not found in typical field guides. Sections covering New York City birding spots as well as birding and conservation organizations will serve to connect readers to the rich birdlife and habitats of the city’s five boroughs."

"Visually beautiful, Leslie Day's Field Guide to the Neighborhood Birds of New York City manages to be clear and concise while including lesser-known salient features of each bird. With this book in hand, you will know where to go to see the woodcock's hunting dance or hear the ruby-throat's call."

"Leslie Day has compiled this long-awaited and superb book filled with stunning illustrations, photographs, and concise information. This welcome anthology of species that harmoniously coexist in our urban environment will be cherished by and is a must-have for anyone interested in the diverse avian community of New York City."
