2016 Bird Book Preview

One of my favorite things to do is to look ahead at the bird books set to be published soon (I lead such an exciting life!). 2016 is shaping up to be a great year for them. Check out April 12, in particular (in addition to the three highlighted titles, two others – The Genius of Birds and Feathers: Displays of Brilliant Plumage – are also set to be published that day). Has there ever been a single date with that many fantastic-looking books set to be published?

    Dear Grant,
    Great list! I’m eagerly looking forward to most of these books. However, there is one more that is highest on my radar for 2016: Princeton Guide to North American Birds. I believe it’s set for a July release. Thanks for the extremely informative and entertaining website!
    Happy New Year,

    I’ve been looking forward to that one for a long time. Maybe 3 years? Does it actually have a firm date? I’d love for it to be this year!

    (And thanks!)

    July 1, 2016, according to buteobooks.com. I hope they’re correct!

    I hope so, too. Unfortunately, this has been “scheduled” for some time now. So I think it’s best to wait until we get some more details (i.e. included in Princeton’s catalog or cover/details included on retailer listings)
