Thanks to all of you tweeters who responded to my request for help in
finding the 2nd printing of Sibley's 2nd edition. For those who don't know,
the 1st printing's type color was a light gray which many reviewers
complained about. In addition there were a few errors, and the red and
green colors were not true to Sibley's paintings. These issues were
supposedly corrected in the 2nd printing run in July 2014. The date can be
found on the back of the title page of the book. All the standard retailers
either only have the 1st printing, or don't recognize the printing at all in
their description.

For those looking for the 2nd printing, Sharon emailed me today noting that
Buteo Books carries both printings and you need to check the 2nd printing
box if you want to get it. I failed to notice this point when I checked
Buteo Books the first time I looked.
