Clever design… Count guidelines are smoothly worked into Richmond's narrative... An engaging, informative introduction.. —Kirkus Reviews

Great book on citizen scientists.  A must read and should be in all public and elementary school libraries. The backmatter adds depth.Terry Young, retired librarian and judge for the AAAS/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Excellence in Science Books

This charming and handsomely illustrated story . . . is accurate in detail, and it wonderfully captures a young person’s enthusiasm . . . Wayne R. Petersen, Director of Massachusetts Important Bird Area (IBA) Program
