Bryan Bland's Old Birders Field Guide

 

 

 

 

We remember just about all of these birding characters from the 1970s and early 1980s (some of them look exactly the same today!), but over the years we have forgotten a few of the names. If you can add to, improve or correct any of the captions below, please email Steve Gantlett:

The original drawings measure approximately 4" × 6" and are available direct from Bryan.
