Greetings!

 

There is a lot of exciting news this quarter!

First, two new birding books were just released that you MUST get for your library! The first is Richard Crossley's new ID Guide: Eastern Birds. The format is totally unlike anything ever done before and a brilliant idea! He displays multiple drawings of the birds in their natural settings, just as you will see them in the wild. The second is Kenn Kaufman's long-awaited Field Guide to Advanced Birding.

 

The other big news is that the Cornell Lab of Ornithology is now selling over 40 of their birding audio guides at big discounts! Some of these may soon be discontinued, so grab them now while you still can!
  
Finally, Vortex Optics has released their new HD (High Definition) line of binoculars for birders. These have superior coatings on the lenses and provide ultra-sharp images, even at dawn and dusk. After many years, I have finally become convinced that birders should be using an 8x42 binocular rather than 10x42. The field of view is wider and the image is a bit brighter. The additional magnification with a 10x42 is nice, but usually not essential for a positive ID.
