Note on notability[edit]

There are some indications of notability, like appearing in "Birders Tales of a Tribe", by Mark Cocker. But I have problems finding sources that let him pass WP:CREATIVE with no problems.

From this search at google books[1]:

  • From Bill Oddie's Birds of Britain and Ireland: "Dave Daley(sic), Clive Byers and Stephen Message are all masters of their craft" [2]
  • From "Birds" magazine, 2000 "Illustrations by David Daly, Stephen Message and Clive Byers are top-class."[3]
  • "The wings of desire", 28 July 2001, review of Cocker's book at The Guardian "Today, Clive Byers is one of Britain's leading bird artists."[4]
  • BirdLife conservation series, "(...) Hilary Burn, Peter Hayman, Chris Rose and Clive Byers for allowing us to reproduce their paintings which were specially commissioned lor members of the Rare (...)"[5]
  • in a Princeton University Press book, Birds of Europe, Russia, China, and Japan, 2007 " (...)Clive Byers, award-winning bird illustrator(...)"[6]

Only 6 pages, but in pages 5-6 I found coverage in five different foreign ornithological magazines: Nos oiseaux, Vår fuglefauna, Der Ornithologische Beobachter, Die Vogelwelt and two issues of Ornis fennica. --Enric Naval (talk) 15:35, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
