We will put the names of the people with correct answers in a hat and drawn the winner. Winner will be identified on our blog on Thursday, October 27th.

Win an autographed copy of The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America, the most complete photographic field guide to North American birds (includes over 3,400 stunning photos and covers 854 species). We are giving away an autographed copy, and celebrating the one year anniversary of our best-selling, The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America, now well into its second printing. Yeah!!

Our new best-seller, The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America's official publication date was last October 25th. What a fabulous year it has been and what rave reviews we have gotten, with some calling it:

"the most spectacular compendium of North American bird identification photographs ever assembled between two covers...resets the bar for North American Field guides"
"strong candidate for best field guide ever"
"bursting with eye-popping images...the Stokes now have the most complete book on the market"
"A Masterpiece. The Stokeses..have blown me away with a field guide to birds"
"This is a guide that leaves nothing out... The Stokeses have taken the medium about as far as it can go in a single volume"

This book took us 6 years of hard work to complete. Over 500 of the images, including front and back cover and inside front and back matter photos, were taken by Lillian. As we say in the acknowledgements:
"And because we, Lillian and Don, are a married couple and a team in every way, we want to thank each other for the tremendous hard work, patience, humor, and love that sustained us through this immense undertaking. We were able to create an atmosphere and work environment where each of us could contribute the best of our individual skills and abilities, resulting in the best guide we could make."

Today we are celebrating our accomplishment (hey, our advice to authors is to celebrate early and often, because if you don't do it, who will?) and we hope you all are enjoying your copies of our guide.

Many of you own this guide, but some of you still may not know about it. Enter the contest and you could own one.

I'd love to win a copy, so I'm going to see if I can discover which bird this is. I posted this on my facebook page too! OK! LOL! I might have asked for help in identifying it.... Is that legal?

Hope your book does well! (:
