David Sibley has been working on a revised edition of his bird guide. It's due out in 2013. Here's are sample plates:
Warblers, Thrashers and Tanagers
Gulls: 50 Shades of Grey!
Cuban Pewee and Tufted Flycatcher
Steller's Jay subspecies
Adding subspecies of Eastern Bluebird, Rose-throated Becard, and Fork-tailed Flycatcher.
David writes: On the drawing board today... Puffins, auklets and murrelets flying away - as they are so often seen from boats. These will be added to the revised bird guide alongside the other images of each species in flight.

On the drawing board yesterday: The very distinctive Queen Charlotte Islands subspecies of the Northern Saw-whet Owl, which was not included in the first edition of the Sibley Guide, but will be in the second!
