The Sibley Guide to Birds was declared seminal even before it hit store shelves. 'Once in a great while, a natural history book changes the way people look at the world,' The New York Times gushed. An ornithologist from the Massachusetts Audubon Society called it “a quantum leap” over previous guide books. It was sold out everywhere after two weeks...Sibley’s newest book What It’s Like to Be a Bird..was published...just as the world went into lockdown, which turned out to be just the right timing...[making Sibley, king of the birders, the pandemic’s unlikeliest celebrity] and the book one of the most succesful of 2020." --The Boston Globe


DAVID ALLEN SIBLEY is the author and illustrator of the series of successful guides to nature that bear his name, including The Sibley Guide to Birds. He has contributed to Smithsonian, Science, The Wilson Journal of Ornithology, Birding, BirdWatching, and North American Birds, and to The New York Times. He is the recipient of the Roger Tory Peterson Award for Lifetime Achievement from the American Birding Association and the Linnaean Society of New York’s Eisenmann Medal.
