Media reviews

"[...] Overall, as with most previous volumes in this series, Volume 14 of HBW is an outstanding piece of work and will prove to be a major source of reference for birders or for anyone interested in ornithology. I find myself using the various volumes of HBW more often than many of the other books in my library, and I for one am looking forward to seeing the penultimate volume at the end of this year. Unlike some of the other publishers in the bird book business, Josep del Hoyo and his team seem to be incredibly reliable in getting volumes of this series to their readers on time. I guess that means that they have very few siestas in their Barcelona office and are all busy working whilst the rest of Spain is sleeping!"
