 David Allen Sibley Biography

The Sibley Guide to Birds, published in the year 2000, was the realization of a lifelong dream for David Allen Sibley, who began painting birds when he was seven years old and has continued painting them for over three decades. The Sibley Guide to Birds contains over 6,600 original illustrations by Sibley, now recognized as Americas leading ornithologist/illustrator. David Allen Sibley is the preeminent brand in American birding and everywhere he goes hundreds of fellow birders come out to meet him for his inventive presentations and lectures.

The Sibley Guide to Birds became the fastest selling bird book in history, earning author David Allen Sibley the moniker the Beatle of birding among the press. Stories about Sibley have run in The New York Times, Audubon, Time, and Science, and the author has appeared on ABC World News Tonight and on NPR’s Science Friday and The Connection. David Allen Sibley has been called the heir apparent to John James Audubon and Roger Tory Peterson and his long awaited guidebook immediately became the gold standard for bird identification when it was published.

Used by millions of birders from novices to the most expert, The Sibley Guide became the standard by which natural history guides are measured. The second edition (published in March 2014) builds on this foundation of excellence, offering massively expanded and updated information, new paintings, new and rare species, and a new, elegant design.

Speaking Topics
  • The Art of Identification

    In the same way that poetry conveys rich meaning in just a few words, the illustrations in a field guide need to give maximum information in minimum space. Tracing his own artistic development through sketches and paintings, David will discuss the unique requirements, and challenges, of illustrating for a field guide.

  • The Genesis of the Sibley Guides

    The Sibley Guide to Birds was first conceived in the late 1970s, when David Sibley was only a teenager, and it took more than 20 years to bring it to completion. In this lecture David will talk about the long (but enjoyable) journey from idea to finished book.

  • The Psychology of Bird Identification

    In this lecture, illustrated with photos, drawings, and a few tests, David will talk about how we perceive the world around us, and how our brains both help and hinder our efforts at bird identification.
