What Others Are Saying About BBA2
Scott Weidensaul, Pulitzer Prize-nominated author of Living on the Wind: Across the Hemisphere with Migratory Birds
"It's hard to overstate what a treasure-trove the Massachusetts Breeding Bird Atlas 2 represents. From its fascinating history on each species of breeding bird, to the often dramatic changes in distribution since the 1970s, this work sets a new standard for such atlases. It's a rich, informative and incredibly interesting resource for anyone, whether or not they bird in the Bay State, made all the better by John Sill's gorgeous illustrations."
John Kricher, Professor Wheaton College, author of A Neotropical Companion and The Peterson Field Guide to Eastern Forests
"The Breeding Bird Atlas 2 is a remarkable achievement even for such a venerable organization as Mass Audubon, with its classic history in bird study. Not merely an informative reference, it is charmingly written, information rich, and can be read and enjoyed cover to cover. BBA2 is a fitting tribute to the hundreds of citizen science birders who provided the data and the volume will serve as an essential benchmark in a century of ecological change."
