Books for Banders

In the latest Ornithological Newsletter there is an announcement of several new books available that may be of interest to banders and birders out there. Most exciting to me is the publication of

Bird Banding in North America: The First Hundred Years by Jerome A. Jackson, William E. Davis, Jr. and John Tautin.
(ISBN 1-877973-45-9)

This is available from the:
Nuttall Ornithological Club
c/o Bird Department
Museum of Comparative Zoology
Harvard University
Cambridge, MA 02138

A second more technical publication is

The Ornithologist's Dictionary by Johannes Erritzoe, Kaj Kampp, Kevin Winker and Clifford Firth.

This dictionary contains over 5000 ornithological terms that are precisely defined. It is available in the U.S. from Buteo Books.

Finally, there is a new book that is a memoir of Walter Post Smith and tells the story of the Kiptopeke Banding Station. This history is available through major online bookstores or:

Center for Conservation Biology
The College of William and Mary
PO Box 8795
Williamsburg, VA 23187
(no price given)

So Many Books, So Little Time!
