Best Illustrated Bird Identification Book

Sample page shows the revolutionary photo montage
used in The Crossley ID Guide by Richard Crossley.
The Crossley ID Guide is stunningly illustrated book available at the Wild Birds Unlimited -East Lansing, MI store that revolutionizes birding by providing the first real-life approach to identification. Richard Crossley is an internationally acclaimed birder and photographer whose love of the outdoors and interest in teaching resulted in the design of a new kind of bird book.

Whether you are a beginner or expert, Crossley’s bird identification book will improve your ability to name birds. Unlike other guides, which provide isolated individual photographs or illustrations, this is the first book to feature large, lifelike scenes for each species. Each scene is composed of 12-20 color images showing the bird in a wide range of situations--near and far, from different angles, in various plumages and behaviors, including flight, and in the habitat in which they live.

The Crossley ID Guide: Eastern Birds is a 544 paged book that all bird watchers will want for study and reference. Its large and detailed plates make it a great coffee table book or the best reference book when you see a new bird at the feeder.
