Hmmm....What could be in the box?

Surprise!! It's our new field guide. We just got some advance copies. Big smile, it's like Christmas

It took six years to make. All we can say is WOW, we are so excited!!!

Could you please post images of a few sample pages from your new guide. I'd like to see the general layout of each species account and how you cover things like the confusing fall warblers. I'll pre-order one of your guides if I like what I see, but not sure about a photographic guide until you reassure me.

It must feel so rewarding when you see all those years of work in print! I can't wait to get my hands on your new guide book and to share it with my friends and family!

I've noticed that my non-birding friends and family do enjoy looking through photo guides and it definitely piques their interest.

Idaho Birder,
Your review copy is on it's way. We're finding even non-birders pick up the guide and can't put it down.

Very cool! I'm going to get 2 copies, 1 for home use only and 1 for the field. Is Oct 25 still the release date?

Andy said...

Waiting for it's public release!

Kevin,
Great to hear you are getting 2 copies! The books will start shipping to various places in early October. By the 25th they will be everywhere nationwide, so that is why they give that as the pub. date.
