  • We are very excited to have you come to our area and speak at the Verde Valley Birding and Nature Festival. We are especially exctied to have the opportunity of having you stay with us at the Desert Rose!

  • Michael Martinez

    Any chance of coming south of the Mason-Dixon Line?

  • Sherry Meddick

    Any chance of getting you to come to Southern California??

  • Terri Hurley

    When will you be coming to the Houston, Texas area? I see you are tentatively scheduled to be in
    Dallas, but Houston is certainly more of a birdy town than Dallas! What’s up with that?!

  • Kathryn Gerlach

    I hope you will come to New Orleans. We have some great independent bookstores and a number of beautiful parks for bird walks, including Audubon Park, City Park, and Lafitte National Park. You can have your photo make next to a bronze statue of James Audubon!

  • Kim Sheahan

    I can’t believe I am stuck in the far west suburbs of Chicago with a bad foot and you are so close! Do you ship signed books by chance?

    • Hi Kim, Sorry you couldn’t make it last night. I signed some extra books there before I left, so they should still have signed copies that you could pick up or ask about shipping. In general any bookstore that I visit would be happy to take your order for a personalized book and ship it to you after my visit, so you can check my schedule and call ahead to place an order.

      Best,
      David

    Dear David,

    Thank you for the 2nd edition of your Guide to Birds. The stunning artwork, wealth of information, and optimal design have made it well worth the wait. I would like to purchase a signed copy for home use, while using my current copy in the field. However, I am inclined to wait until the second printing for this. So, I am wondering (1) when you estimate the next printing will take place and (2) if you will still be doing your book tour at that point. I would plan to call ahead to place the order.

    Thanks again for your outstanding Guide, and good birding.

    Kevin
