I reach for this, and the other 2 books in the series, again and again. Recently, someone asked me, "Have all the Red-winged Black Birds migrated?"

I absolutely loved this book and found it fascinating. I have developed a love of backyard birds and can't read enough about them. Watching their behaviors while making their nests, raising their little ones and parenting the juveniles has been so interesting. It is amazing that any birds survive with so many odds stacked against them and so many predators. This book gave me so much extra knowledge that I was yearning for about specific breeds of birds. Can't wait to read Volume II.

The Stokes' three volumes on bird behavior are limited in the number of birds they cover but extremely detailed in the coverage of those birds. All three are extremely highly recommended to anyone who wants to understand some common North American birds' behavior better.
