Field Guides and References - Availability

It's a fact that for many specific bird families and groups many of the best identification and field guides, as well as reference works, may be out of print. Many of these out of print books are still available on the Internet from used book dealers such as Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/), though usually at a higher price. Out of print titles are designated with (oop).
