“So what’s so different about the Crossley ID Guide? Everything.”

You don’t have to take my word for it anymore. Wayne Mones has written a stellar review of The Crossley ID Guide: Eastern Birds at Audubon Magazine’s web site.

“What’s so different about the Crossley ID Guide? Everything. Crossley has designed his guide to reflect the way we see and identify birds. We identify birds by their size, shape, structure, behavior, habitat, and field marks. We [see] birds at close range, at middle and long distances, on the ground, in flight, in trees, and on the water,” writes Wayne. “If you want to be a better birder you will find the new Crossley ID Guide to be [a] major innovation and a valuable tool.”

And if you are thinking — that’s hyperbole, it can’t be true, here’s David Lindo writing at The Urban Birder to back up Wayne’s assessment:

“Believe the hype! The plates are incredible…I think it’s a brilliant, innovative idea and everyone should get a copy.” David continues, “[people] will absolutely love it, especially people new to birding – the main part of the book’s target audience….I salute Richard Crossley’s bravery. I think it’s a brilliant, innovative idea and everyone should get a copy.”
