[birdky] Older out-of-print books inc. Bird Guide by Chester Reed

Thought I'd share that I have often found obscure out-of-print books via search 
at Amazon.com.  Here is link to "bird guide chester reed" and multiple options 
are shown -
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss/183-3253451-5669429?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=bird%20guide%20chester%20reed
 
PS - the folks that reported hummingbird sightings would increase after lull in 
July/August was correct.  I am plumb flush with hummers and can hardly keep 
four feeders refreshed and filled nowadays.

A few weeks ago a friend in Texas found a little pocket-sized book (5.5 x 
3.5 inches) at Half-Price Books for $3.

Bird Guide, Land Birds East of the Rockies, by Chester A. Reed.  New Revised 
Edition.  HB, 238 pp.  copyright 1951 by Doubleday & Company;
copyright 1906, 1909 by Charles K. Reed.

Here's an interesting link to the book and author:

I wonder how many out there have this birding book? The link says this was 
the first pocket field size bird guide.

These posts on bird books I think are on subject for BirdKY, so I hope you 
enjoy them.
