A magical book -- Killian Fox * Observer *

The birds' nests in Susan Ogilvy's new book are beautifully painted in watercolour and at life-size... The shapes of her paintings, as of the nests themselves, are each different. They are also clearer than photographs could have been - you can almost feel you're holding them in your hand. This is an enchanting book

-- David Gentleman
This is the most beautiful, treasure-like book, a collection of exquisitely painted discarded bird nests accompanied by highly informative text. The nests are life-sized and Ogilvy's beautiful work is minutely detailed, so you can really see every last bit of twig and moss. The variety is extraordinary and the birds' building styles even more so... A really wonderful book -- India Knight * Sunday Times *
A gem of a book -- Anita Rani * BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour *
A cool, clean ruffle of winter air. Ranging across almost 30 species, it is an illustrated guide to the nests Ogilvy discovered around her home. Like Tracey Emin's bed, avian housekeeping reveals a lot about the species in question -- Alex Diggins * Telegraph *
