The Sibley Guide to Birds
Used by millions of birders from novices to the most expert, The Sibley Guide to Birds quickly became the standard by which natural history guides are measured. The highly anticipated second edition builds on this foundation of excellence, offering massively expanded and updated information, new paintings, new and rare species, and a new, elegant design.
The second edition of this handsome, flexibound volume offers a wealth of improvements and updates, including illustrations reproduced 15 to 20 percent larger for better detail, nearly 7,000 paintings digitally remastered from original art for enhanced print quality, expanded text that includes habitat information and voice description for every species and more tips on finding birds in the field, along with more than 600 new paintings, including illustrations of 115 rare species and additional paintings of common species and regional populations, and lots more. It brings the genius of David Allen Sibley to the world once again in a thoroughly updated and expanded volume that every birder must own.
