Dear  , 


It will be spring migration time in just a few weeks - even though it may not feel like it to those of you still shivering in the northeast!
  
Our friends Don and Lillian Stokes have just released new and improved bird guides for the eastern and western US & Canada. And Richard Crossley has just come out with an amazing new Raptor ID book using his extremely distinctive style! We discovered some additional bird books in our mailbox that you may want to check out - like Audubon's Aviary and a new book for kids!
  
Good Birding,  Pete Thayer
