"This delightful look at the world of pigeons is a treasure."–Kenn Kaufman, author of Kaufman Field Guides

"We scorn pigeons for their commonness, but their ubiquity speaks to their talents. Past civilizations domesticated them and brought them wherever they went, for pigeons were loved and prized–as messengers, as producers of fertilizer, as meat on the plate. With her trademark wit and artistic charms, Mosco gives us a hundred reasons to rekindle the love affair. A Pocket Guide to Pigeons is part field guide, part history, part ornithology primer, and altogether fun!"–Mary Roach, author of seven New York Times Bestselling books
