The Crossley ID Guide: Britain and Ireland gets a field test at Birding Ecosse

Birding Ecosse has a terrific article about the usefulness of The Crossley ID Guides in the field. In spite of birders’ best efforts (calls, silent stalking, binoculars and scopes), this is what they are likely to see in the field when they go looking for scoters. And a quick side-by-side comparison shows how The Crossley ID Guide really does represent these real life fuzzy, distant views.
