 "Patrick Harwood has accomplished the impossible: He has brought a graveyard to life, and he has done so beautifully by honoring those who live there through the beauty and grace of birds."  Alex Sanders, former College of Charleston president and noted environmentalist   
"Clearly this book is a labor of love for Patrick, and I am certain you- as am I- will be ever-enriched with these beautiful images he has given us." Greg Schmitt, College of Charleston communication professor and professional photographer
"The Birds of Magnolia Cemetery” takes a leisurely visit to Magnolia Cemetery and adds a whole new dimension. Patrick’s photography, identifications, passionate observations, and field notes open our eyes to the beauty and diversity of birds found at this Lowcountry destination, all the while encouraging us to see the cemetery from an entirely different perspective."  Marvin Bouknight, “South Carolina’s Lowcountry…Naturally” author, naturalist and photographer
