Reality Birding -- The Crossley ID Guide: Eastern Birds by Richard Crossley
Is a picture worth a thousand words? Reliance on imaging (rather than imagining) seems to be the 21st century media trend. This The Crossley ID Guide: Eastern Birds by Richard Crossley helps make birdwatching and identification easier, more accurate, and more fun. The product description says it best:
Unlike other guides, which provide isolated individual photographs or illustrations, this is the first book to feature large, lifelike scenes for each species. These scenes--640 in all--are composed from more than 10,000 of the author's images showing birds in a wide range of views--near and far, from different angles, in various plumages and behaviors, including flight, and in the habitat in which they live.
These beautiful compositions show how a bird's appearance changes with distance, and give equal emphasis to characteristics experts use to identify birds: size, structure and shape, behavior, probability, and color. This is the first book to convey all of these features visually--in a single image--and to reinforce them with accurate, concise text.
Each scene provides a wealth of detailed visual information that invites and rewards careful study, but the most important identification features can be grasped instantly by anyone.
