    American birders are used to birding field guides that can be easily carried into the field where they can refer to them when they see an unusual bird Richard Crossley comes from another tradition He grew up in England where the tradition was to take a notebook and pencil with you when birding to make notes about or draw what you saw Then you returned to base and compared your notes or drawings to what was shown in your birding guide books That tradition has informed his recently released ma American birders are used to birding field guides that can be easily carried into the field where they can refer to them when they see an unusual bird Richard Crossley comes from another tradition He grew up in England where the tradition was to take a notebook and pencil with you when birding to make notes about or draw what you saw Then you returned to base and compared your notes or drawings to what was shown in your b...

    As far as bird ID guides go, this one is still very American, despite possibly belonging to England tradition , which means quite poor There is still a wealth of critical information missing from this book, especially considering its formidable size But at least there are field marks, distribution maps, and even some mention of the habitat, which isthan I came to expect from American bird guides I personally prefer drawings by a biologist to photos to drawings by an a...

    This Bird ID Guide is different from any other one I ve seen in a couple significant ways First, it takes many photos of each species and crams them all into one plate, rather than showing one or two photos of each species on a faded background Second, birds are shown up close, so you can see the details of plumage, but also at vari...

    The Crossley ID Guide is not a traditional field guide it is too large to carry in the field, and it does not provide the quick reference for field marks that other guides, like The Sibley Guide to Birds, provide However, all birders will want this book for study and reference Its large and detailed plates come closer than those of any bird guide to replicating the experience of seeing birds in the field It should be especially useful for intermediate birders who want to move beyond puzzling The Crossley ID Guide is not a traditional field guide it is too large to...

    This is a new type of bird guide It is large, impossibly large to carry in the field It is entirely photographic That itself is not new, what is new is that it tries to present multiple images and birds so that a viewer can see almost any possible pose It isn t the most useful guide for all birders, I don t know if a beginning birder would know where to start It probably isn t useful for birders who don t take photographs Until recently very few birders took photos of birds, but today many This is a new type of bird guide It is large, impossibly large to carry in the field It is entirely photographic That itself is not new, what is new is that it tries to present multiple images and birds so that a viewer can see almost any possible pose It isn t the most useful guide for all birders, I don t know if a beginning birder would know where to start It probably isn t useful for birders who don t take photographs Until recently very few birder...

    This is such a beautiful book I m amazed by the lovely Photoshopped images showing each species in a variety of views in its natural habitat I don t know of any other guide that does that and certainly not one that combines the beautiful photography with thorough species descriptions It s a fantastic book When I first saw it I just had to get a copy It s expensive and well worth it Just don t expect to take it along in your backpack This is for browsing at home or for riding along with yo This is such a beautiful book I m amazed by the lo...
