Sibley’s first wall poster “field guide” for every backyard birder


Beginning with the publication of The Sibley Guide to Birds in 2000, David Allen Sibley has gone on to establish himself as North America’s premier naturalist and illustrator of birds. Now for the first time, a selection of his beautiful paintings are presented in a high-quality wall poster, printed on 100-lb matte paper. The Sibley’s Backyard Birds of Eastern North America poster features 98 common species in 144 illustrations.

  • Birds are reproduced in relative scale to show differences in size.
  • Species are arranged by families: finches, blackbirds, woodpeckers, warblers, etc.
  • Illustrations of males and females, breeding and nonbreeding, and juvenile birds are included to help in identification.
  • Region covers area from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains east to the Atlantic states

 

Using gouache watercolors, Sibley created these paintings based on years of observation, field work, and sketching to capture the essence of each species as observed in nature. Taken from his best-selling field guides and carefully selected by Sibley himself, he states: “I wanted a way to display the wonderful diversity of our birds ‘at a glance.’ I hope it will encourage people to learn more about our birds and to help protect their habitats in our neighborhoods across the continent.”

 

“Once in a great while, a natural history book changes the way people look at the world. In 1838, John James Audubon’s Birds of America was one...In 1934, Roger Tory Peterson produced Field Guide to the Birds...Now comes The Sibley Guide to Birds.”
New York Times
“This wonderful book is comprehensive—erudite—in fact, magnificent, a powerful book that will start a new generation of bird books and birding. It provides triple the educational content over any predecessor. The treatments are innovative and superb.”

—Frank Gill, National Audubon Society
