Please note, this is the US version of The North American Bird Guide, published in the UK by Bloomsbury. Knopf's second print run addresses both colour saturation in the plates and font colour, an issue raised by many readers. Bloomsbury indicated that no new print run has been planned yet. We recommend customers who have no problems with Bloomsbury's version to place their order here.
