Hi, Diana

The gift shop at Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary
at Ladner, BC, has a number of plasticised
fold-outs with photographs of birds for identification
purposes - for sale. There are several - one each
major bird categories; they are durable and intended
for use in the field.

One of these might be useful for your purposes.

The gift shop also has a good collection of
books for bird identification. Cheers.

Well after a few months of looking for a printshop, as well as a adding a bunch more species to the poster, it is finally ready. I expect to have it in stores in the next week or two, starting with a number of stores on the lower island. So check your local bird feed store (Wild Birds Unlimited, Wild Bird Centre etc) or contact me directly for a local dealer. Here is a link to the final poster layout.

The pileated came in the day i was to take it into the print shop and really finished off the poster well. I can be reached at www.raincoastphoto.com for details

Lol, i tried to keep them to the usual suspects, the big issue is trying to keep them to scale, anything bigger then a coopers hawk makes the bushtits really small :)
