Join the Doylestown Bookshop on Wednesday, July 13th at 6:30pm for a book signing and discussion with David Sibley, the author and illustrator of The Sibley Guide to Birds, where he will explore with us his newest book Sibley Birds EAST.
About the Author:
There are 47 million birdwatchers. But there is only one David Sibley.
He knows every North American bird: by its shade, by its tilt, by its habitat, by its male, female, and juvenile plumages. It’s only natural; he’s the son of a Yale ornithologist and has been birding since his childhood in Connecticut. Sibley was only seven when he began drawing birds, filing his illustrations away along with clips about the natural history of each species.
It’s a habit he never shook. As an adult, Sibley merged that encyclopedic knowledge with his skills as a self-taught artist to become one of America’s best-known field guide authors. His first bird guide was released in 2000. With The Sibley Field Guide to Birds, a New York Times bestseller, Sibley was immediately hailed as heir to the great birder and artist Roger Tory Peterson, placing him in a long line of artist-naturalist hybrids that leads straight back to John James Audubon himself.
He’s also the author of The Birds of Cape May, The Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behavior, The Sibley Field Guide to Birds of Eastern North America, The Sibley Field Guide to Birds of Western North America, Hawks in Flight, and Sibley’s Birding Basics. All together he has sold more than 1.75 million copies of his books. Sibley creates all his work from his home in Concord, Massachusetts.
