Sibley Posters

     In case you haven't heard David Sibley and Scott & Nix, Inc. have produced several wall posters based on David's Sibley Guide to Birds. Here are some examples:

Eastern Backyard Birds                                                                                 Western Backyard Birds
                                                

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
The only problem I have with these posters is that on some of the posters the nomenclature is from 2000 and thus is somewhat dated (e.g. Screech-Owls are still in the genus Otus instead of Megascops). Other posters and other items are available from the Scott & Nix, Inc. website: http://www.scottandnix.com/ and elsewhere.
These items include non-Sibley posters on fish:
The larger posters are $29.95 and the smaller ones are $24.95 U.S. UPDATE: Here's a tentative schedule for upcoming posters:


2011
Sibley's Raptors
Sibley's Trees (West)

2012
Sibley's Feederbirds East
Sibley's Feederbirds West

2013
Sibley's Warblers
Sibley's Sparrows

  1. Does he ever sell prints of individual birds? I'd like to buy some of those.

  3. Oh, wonderful! I've been fantasizing about Sibley ID posters for years. He needs to make a sparrow one.
