Dear Mike Baird, I am writing about some of the photos you have posted on flickr; there is a list of eleven URLs at the bottom of this note. I would like to use these images as illustrations in a book I am writing. The book is called a Field Guide to Urban Wildlife of North America. Stackpole Books will publish it in 2011. The book will be available, but I don't expect to make a profit from it; it is both an educational work and a labor of love. The book will contain a few hundred photos, and flickr members contributed many of them. The creative commons license you have posted indicates that the photos may be freely used if attributed. I have read your profile and will follow those instructions and attribute each photo. My name is Julie Feinstein (it was already taken on flickr). I work at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. You can contact me through flickr mail or at my work email address: jfstein [at} @amnh d o t org. Thank you for making the photos available! I am profoundly grateful for your generosity. I will send you a copy of the book when it is released.
Best regards, Julie
