"This is an excellent text that contains a tremendous amount of information useful for both wildlife biologists and veterinarians." - Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, June 2009
"Overall this very reasonably-priced book is quite well done. I recommend this book to any veterinarian working with wild birds or wild-caught birds including zoo specimens or veterinary students with an interest in such matters. Wildlife biologists, wildlife rehabilitators and wildlife centers should also find this book useful. University parasitologists should also find an interest in this new offering." -Veterinary Information Network
