Subject: Re: [OKBIRDS] Handy Index for Sibley's

I remembered my brother having one of these with his Sibley s guide when he introduced me to birding many years ago. I’m guessing the publishers are doing a better job of indexing and quick indexing than they did in older editions.

I always gift my old copies to new birders, so I can’t check the old editions to see if there was a deficit in the old editions.

I agree though. I don’t see the point for the current edition. It’s got plenty of indexing to get you on your bird.

Thank You,

I didn't really think using a normal index was that much of a pain, and most have a quick index in the back as well.

That link doesn't have any of the newer Sibley's as far as I could tell... but, if that image represents what people would be wanting to buy, I can't imagine it being difficult for someone to type something up themselves and print it out. And you can buy sticker paper. Just a thought.
Personally, though I haven't done this myself, I wouldn't mind a field guide that was tabbed by families or something. Either tabs that stick out or the ones that go in like an old Bible.

I hope someone replies all because I'm not even sure what this is about. I'm curious now. :)

Hoping someone will help me find where to order the Handy Index for the new Sibley’s Guide to Birds. I purchased one in 2001, but don’t remember where to order it.
