If you have not heard enough about this book or gotten a copy yet, you owe it to yourself to get it, even if you don’t live in New York State.
All of the New York’s 250 or so breeding birds are discussed in detail as well as a detailed comparisons to the last Breeding Bird Atlas.
The artwork in the book in phenomenal, but at over 600 pages, this is not a pocket sized field guide. Many of the original prints are currently on display in a small exhibit at the New York State Museum.
Also I will be more than willing to autograph any of your copies (my name appears on page XX, last name on the right hand column), free of charge. I’ll even throw in a picture of myself at no extra charge, so you can try and figure out who I am.
