Just a shot in the dark here but I have approached Princeton Uni Press with the idea of producing a family monograph on hummers and the editor is interested...which is always the first hurdle! I'm up for doing the illustrations obviously but need an author. Does anyone know of any crazy such person that would entertain this idea? The book would (hopefully) run in the format of Helm monographs, with plates, individual text and (even more hopefully) photos at the back....Helm in the UK are weirdly ambivalent about making such a book - their loss, as I think it would sell in droves...especially when looking at how similar books about less widely-appreciated families sell. There is no comprehensive book containing all the hummers of the world - except HBW, which, by its very nature cannot be overly detailed.
Yes, the end product would not be cheap but, again, as HBW has proved, people (esp birders!!) will spend money on a quality product.
So, if anyone has a bright idea, please let me know
