Featuring over 200 color photos of rarities and regular species, this book authoritatively provides individual entries that include a summary of status and seasonal distribution, and comments on changes over time. Detailed color-coded maps accompany species accounts, and for species recorded five or fewer times, dates and locations of each record are noted. The introduction examines the state's geography, the history of bird records, and background information to species accounts, and the extensive bibliography guides birders to original sources used in the book. This is the essential resource for birders, ornithologists, and nature enthusiasts interested in the birds of New Jersey and the greater surrounding region.

Critique: "Anyone who birds regularly in New Jersey or neighbouring states should not only study this book in depth but also keep it side by side with their standard field guide to Eastern North America. . . . The Birds of New Jersey is an object lesson in how to produce a book of this type. It is well researched, succinct but detailed, easily accessible and extremely logical in the arrangement of the information." --Phil Slade, Another Bird Blog

"After looking through The Birds of New Jersey: Status and Distribution by William J. Boyle, I was reminded of what a great state New Jersey is for birds. . . . The book is likely the best of its kind in presenting the birding locales, prevalence, and status of birds for a single state. It is easy to navigate and concise. For any birder living in, near, or visiting New Jersey, this is one book to have!" --Jerry Liguori, Utah Birders blog

"A must have for birders with an interest in the birds of New Jersey!" --Ian Paulsen, Birdbooker Report

"Here is a beautiful book with a simple purpose, providing up to date status and distribution information for birds in New Jersey and the surrounding region. The Birds of New Jersey: Status and Distribution by William J. Boyle is a real winner in my book. It doesn't try to be a one stop bird book, rather it finds a small niche and really nails it." --Nemesis Bird

"This comprehensive but portable paperback will be the ideal accompaniment for any stay in the state, and records of species like Long-billed Curlew will excite the interest of the British rarity-hunter." --Birdwatch (UK)

" The Birds of New Jersey is a must for New Jersey birders. And it will be very useful for birders from other states or countries that visit the Garden State." --Fritz Brock, Wildlife Activist

"Well written and concise, the work can be recommended as a quick and easy way to determine when and where each New Jersey bird species should occur and will be useful for both amateur birdwatchers and professional ornithologists." --Christopher J. Butler, IBIS
