Bird Book Publishers

This cannot be an exhaustive list of publishers or even birdbook publishers. It is a series of links into those bird book publishers that we know about that are establishing an Internet presence.

So, I have chosen some of the leading names for the use of any of you budding authors or illustrators looking for a suitable publisher!

Useful Information

Avian Review

http://sites.google.com/site/avianreview/Home
This website is for birders and has two key purposes, which come from two questions that have always driven me in my search of bird books. One: What other bird books exist in the different categories of countries, family groups, or species? Two: What's in these books and should I buy them?
