Don and Lillian Stokes at ABA signing Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America

Here we are signing books at the ABA Conference

We had a great time doing a talk and book signing at the American Birding Association Conference last week in RI. It was so rewarding to hear such nice comments on our new The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America from the ABA birders and just about all of them bought the book! We also saw Jeff Gordon, ABA's brand new president. He's a great guy and there's a bright future for ABA with him at the helm.

Thank you both for the outstanding field guide! The photos are numerous and absolutely beautiful, all plumages are covered (even subspecies and morphs!), the supportive text is thorough and well organized (two thumbs up for the emphasis on quantitative shape!), the range maps are updated, rarities are included, I could go on and on...

P.S. Those are killer shots of 2 of my favorites, Swallow-tailed Kite and Black Skimmer!

Thanks so much Kevin.
P.S. I took all the Black Skimmer photos (except the juv.)

Congratulations! It must be so fun going on tour to promote this great new field guide! I'm sure it's very exhilarating and rewarding after all the hard work you put into this great birding resource.
