Today is official publication date, The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America, yeah!

Yeah! Today is the official date that The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America will be in all the stores. Look for it in retailers, your local bookstore, nature and bird stores and online stores all across the country.

This took six long years to write. During that time we were always thinking about how to make this a wonderful field guide for you, so you could learn to identify, enjoy and appreciate the vast and beautiful panorama of the birdlife of North America. Signing books, as we are doing here at the ABA conference, is one of the more rewarding aspects of being an author. With each and every copy we sign, we hope you will get years of enjoyment out of our guide.

The first magic moment when we opened the box. We were thrilled when we saw the superb quality of those 3,400 stunning photos of birds in the guide.

Stacked on our kitchen counter, and now it's on the bookstore shelves.

We give more photos and text for the more challenging or hard-to-identify species, because that is what birders want and need.

To see a beautiful Slide Show of some of Lillian's best photos from our new guide, go HERE.

We sincerely thank all of you who have so far gotten our guide and for the wonderful comments and reviews. We hope to see some of you at our upcoming talks and book signings.
