Volumes 1 to 9 are at King City Library

Yesterday, I made mention of the Handbook of the Birds of the World and the photo contest sponsored by the Spanish publisher, Lynx Edicions.   I should have mentioned that Volumes 1 to 9 of this incomparable series are available to patrons of the local library in King City, Ontario, where I live.   The first 9 volumes were donated to the our library by a patron, a couple of years ago.   Internationally, the series is finally completed at 16 volumes, the cost of which is $160 (Canadian) per volume, or $2,560 for the set.   The price is a bit steep for most birders, which makes the books at the library very appealing.   The volumes at the King City library cannot be taken off the premises, but there are lots of comfy places to sit and peruse what are arguably the finest bird guides in the world.   They are a joy to behold.
