According to the publisher, almost every aspect of the book has undergone a remarkable makeover. Dozens of species have been added, most paintings have been revised, and hundreds of new paintings have been created. Maps have been updated, fonts have been tweaked, illustrations enlarged.
Author David Sibley is a Bird Watcher, whose useful ID tips and beautiful artwork appear in his books.
Sibley stated, “There have been many printings, but the only real change was a couple of errors corrected in the fourth printing. (The second and third printings were rolled together and happened just after the book went on sale, so I had no chance to make changes until the fourth.)

According to Sibley, there were a lot of many different sources of information were involved in the acknowledgments for the project. A few people took the time to write detailed critiques of the first edition, and those were very helpful, and quite a few people have emailed Sibley with specific suggestions or pointing out errors.
There are some changes that have taken place from the first addition. The way the text was arranged in one of the changes that you will see in his new book. Other changes, such as: the fonts, designs , aesthetics, and such like. He stated that other things are decided after lots of thought, consideration, and some discussion.
We look forwarding to viewing the second addition of the Sibley series and we hope that Bird Lovers from all across America will love it too!
