Dear Sir,

We are preparing the publication of a monograph on the Jack Snipe, one of the least known Palearctic wader species.
This book is signed by G.-N. Olivier, one of the rare specialists of the species. Its publishing has been approved by the Ministry for Ecology and Sustainable Development (MEDD), the National Office for Hunting and Wildlife (ONCFS) and the African-Eurasian Waterbird Agreement (AEWA). It takes stock of the available knowledge on the natural history of the species and the present state of its populations. It enters the line of the books published by OMPO (Migratory Birds of the Western Palearctic) in 2000 and 2004 intended for well informed readers (ornithologists, hunters, managers of wildlife and its sustainable use,…) interested in the study of waders and also the naturalist wishing to discover a secret species that long-time passed unnoticed.
It also is a tool for governmental services and the European bodies in charge with the implementation of the recommendations of the international conventions (Convention on Wetlands CMS , AEWA) for the conservation of the birds and their habitats.
For the illustration of the book I did some iconographic research and found your photograph on the website.
Could you please tell me as soon as possible under which conditions you could make available one or several of your photographs and would accept to take part in this editorial project knowing that the book will be published in 2 versions: one in French and the other in English, in spring 2007.
OMPO undertakes to use these photographs only in the scope of the original edition of the book. It is anticipated to print 1000 copies of every version.
Each photograph used will be clearly attributed to its author.
Moreover, every contributor will be indicated in the list of thanks and will receive a copy of both versions as soon as they will be published.
This book by OMPO, edited like the preceding ones for a non-profit purpose will be distributed free of charge to the French and foreign ornithological libraries in order to make it accessible to the general public.
Please let me know your decision.
Thank you very much and best regards,

Alexandre Czajkowski
