Richard Crossley Lecture, May 16 at 7:30pm

Published by at 6:57 am under Books & Events


Here’s a lecture you won’t want to miss if you’re in the market for a new field guide.  And even if you’re not!

On Monday May 16 at 7:30pm at the National Aviary, acclaimed birder and photographer Richard Crossley will speak about his revolutionary new field guide, the Crossley ID Guide: Eastern Birds

In his book, Crossley shows the birds in their natural habitat, on the ground and in flight, near and far, in breeding and non-breeding plumage and in transition.  This is as close to reality as you’ll get in a guide.  It’s what you see when you’re out in the field.

Click on the image above to watch Richard Crossley’s video and see what I mean.  It’s a new look at birds.  I’m convinced!

The lecture is free and open to the public.  The guide will be for sale that evening and Crossley will stay after the lecture for a book-signing.

    Thanks for the heads-up Kate.

    Is there going to be a Western version? And how does it stack up against the Peterson Guide (which I just bought on Saturday)? I’m assuming that it is much better.

    Thanks!

    ok, forget my question, that is an amazing looking book (I’ll watch the video first next time).

    From the reviews that I read, the general consensus seems to be that it’s an excellent reference guide with beautiful photos, however, due to it’s size (500+ pages and 10″ x ~8″) many say that it’s too bulky to be a field guide.

    My copy will be arriving in a few days :)
