"Watching Waders" takes the mud and mosquitoes out of waders. That is, Fieth and Male endured the mud and mosquitoes so you and I can ogle exquisite footage of America's waders from the comfort of a sofa...The footage of a roseate spoonbill settling on its stick nest or the sequence showing reddish egrets in the colony is worth the price of the tape alone."
Mark Wilson, the Boston Globe

"For any third party,the most spectacular of these films is "Watching Waders"... Most of these waders are big, engaging glamorous lookers and most of them are gregarious if not actually colonial; their proactive love life as well as parenting and feeding take place in open, accessible locations and as a result, we get lots of close-ups of their extraordinary life-style antics. We look in and listen to performances - most especially the birds own vocal accompaniments - that often consist of the most bizarre displays, at once hilarous and touching."
Eric Salzman
reviewing for The American Birding Association

I strongly recommend "Watching Waders" to everyone with an interest in birds or birding.  It is hard to imagine anyone who would not enjoy this tape strictly for its aesthetics... Much of the footage involves intimate looks at birds courting, mating, nesting, and raising young, treating us to many beautiful views of some gorgeous birds.

I didn't think you could surpass what you did with "Watching Warblers," but you did!  It was just wonderful, both beautiful and engrossing."
