William Munoz has an avid interest in ecology and the environment and has taken the photographs for a number of books written by Dorothy Hinshaw Patent. Mr. Munoz lives in Hamilton, Montana.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-7. This colorful and highly informative book presents an abundance of facts about these birds' habits, breeds, and close association with humans. Patent traces the origins of pigeons from their forebears, the rock doves of Europe, Asia, and northern Africa. Descriptions of one of these descendants, the feral pigeon, will provide food for thought for readers who are used to seeing pigeons as part of an urban environment. Substantiation of pigeon intelligence is provided through a chapter devoted to that topic, which includes examples of different experiments done to determine the birds' mental capabilities. The usefulness of homing pigeons and their long history of serving humankind is described as is pigeon racing (the national sport in Belgium). Full-color photos of these diverse and interesting creatures add much to the text, while a glossary and index help make it a valuable resource. For those who thought pigeons were just an annoying fact of city life, this book is enlightening. It should also be of interest to any student doing research or simply curious about the many varieties and talents of the pigeon family.?Carol Fazioli, Cardinal Hayes Library, Manhattan College, NY
