The publication of The Sibley Guide to Birds in 2000 quickly established David Allen Sibley as the author and illustrator of the nation's supreme and most comprehensive guide to birds. Used by millions of birders from novices to the most expert, The Sibley Guide 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:
  • All illustrations reproduced 15 to 20 percent larger for better detail.
  • Includes nearly 7,000 paintings digitally remastered from original art for enhanced print quality.
  • Expanded text includes habitat information and voice description for every species and more tips on finding birds in the field.
  • More than 600 new paintings, including illustrations of 115 rare species and additional paintings of common species and regional populations.
  • More than 700 updated maps of ranges, showing winter, summer, year-round, migration, and rare ranges.
  • 85 bird family pages now cross-referenced to species accounts.
  • Revised taxonomic order and most current common names for every species.

The Sibley Guide to Birds, second edition, brings the genius of David Allen Sibley to the world once again in a thoroughly updated and expanded volume that every birder must own.

 

 

Undoubtedly the finest guide to North American birds ..... Far superior to all previously available. - Guy McCaskie, Birding Magazine

Once in a great while, a natural history book changes the way people look at the world. In 1838, John James Audubon's Birds of America was one ... In 1934, Roger Tory Peterson produced Field Guide to the Birds ... Now comes The Sibley Guide to Birds. - The New York Times

 

DAVID ALLEN SIBLEY, son of the well-known ornithologist Fred Sibley, began seriously watching and drawing birds in 1969, at age seven. He has written and illustrated articles on bird identification for Birding and American Birds (now Field Notes) as well as regional publications and books. Since 1980 David has traveled the continent watching birds on his own and as a tour leader for WINGS, Inc. He has lived in California, Arizona, Texas, Florida, Georgia, New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey. He now lives in Concord, Massachusetts.
