I just subscribed to the list so I could ask a question of the
members, and I hope this is an "approved" subject.
I'm in the midst of writing a photographic guide to North American
shorebirds, and I wondered if anyone on this list is a wader
photographer and would be interested in having your photos used in
this book. I'm looking primarily for photos of Siberian waders, as
almost all of them have been found in North America, and the book
will discuss even accidental species. I hope some of you have seen
my book Shorebirds of the Pacific Northwest, as I know at least a few
copies have found their way Down Under.
Princeton University Press, which is publishing the present book, has
assured me that all photographers will be remunerated well, but as
commercial use of this list is discouraged, I won't mention any
If you are a wader photographer with a good collection of good photos
of Siberian waders (or any others that occur in North America) and
would be interested in this, please e-mail me. Or if you know of
someone who's not on the list who I should contact, that would be
great, too. Thanks!
By the way, I also find it enjoyable to hear about Aussie birding.
I've made four trips to your beautiful country, the last of which was
just two months ago. The last two trips have been oriented toward
dragonflies, but I've done plenty of birding on all of them. On this
most recent visit, I paid someone to take my wife and me out birding
for the first time in my life, and I saw 18 new birds in a day around
Deniliquin with Phil Maher, one of my finest birding days in recent
years. Seeing three new waders (you can probably figure out which
three) was heavenly!
