Good question, Joey (in St. Paul):
Unwrapping your holiday gift is likely to result in euphoric glee, if you give your friend the The Warbler Guide (Tom Stephenson and Scott Whittle; Princeton Univ. Press, 2013)
It's the most current, comprehensive field guide focusing on the New World wood-warblers in the Parulidae family.
Where to get it?
Nicebooks.com is a wonderful resource, given the total cost for the book, including shipping is featured from low to high price after you type in a book title.
Funny related anecodote.
Tom Stephenson's brother (Mark) lives near me, so we often see each other at vagrant spots while birding along the N. CA coast where I live in Marin Co. (SF Bay Area).
Mark is an excellent birder, who has an equally adept birder son.
Scott Whittle highlighted this guide at a Golden Gate Audubon Society presentation that I attended. Inventive, eloquent speaker. Wonderful.
And so is the field guide.
Happy gift giving.....Regards, Daniel Edelstein
