Breaking news from The Midwest Birding Symposium! Field guide author/illustrator David Sibley has been added as a speaker on Friday night, September 18. The MBS is being held September 17 to 20, 2009 in beautiful Lakeside, Ohio.
David Sibley's newest book is The Sibley Guide to Trees, covering more than 600 North American tree species. His MBS presentation will discuss the creation of the new Trees guide and the connections between trees, birds, and bird watchers.
He will be signing copies of his new Trees guide on Friday afternoon and also after his talk on Friday evening.
I know this feels a bit like piling on, adding David Sibley to a line-up of talented speakers that already includes Kenn Kaufman, Scott Weidensaul, Al Batt, Julie Zickefoose, Jim McCormac, Jane Alexander, Jeff Bouton, Alvaro Jaramillo, Lang Elliott, Arthur Morris, Paul Baicich, Wayne Petersen, Diane Porter, Ben Lizdas, Chris Wood, Andy Jones, Jim Berry, Amanda Rodewald, Sharon Stiteler, and Mike Bergin.
