This may be flogging a dead horse, but I did have a nice chat with Mr.Sibley about his new field guide at S.A.S. on Tuesday. I asked him what HE thought of it and he said that overall he was quite pleased. He had been looking for brighter, richer tones than in the previous edtn., and felt he had got that. He thought there were maybe half a dozen pages of plates, where the colors were wrong - too blue or green and that there were a few needed corrections to individual bird illus. He also made the interesting point that he thought that it was the FIRST edtn that was "off", not bright enough and that this why people in comparing the new one to the old found it "off".

Hope this helps and does not leave you totally confused!! All I can say is that the line to have him sign your books ran through two rooms and down the hall. We have come a long way since Ernest Seton Thompson. David
