Bird Field Guides and others

The Crossley ID Guide: Eastern Birds

This stunningly illustrated book from acclaimed birder and photographer Richard Crossley revolutionizes field guide design by providing the first real-life approach to identification. Whether you are a beginner, expert, or anywhere in between, The Crossley ID Guide will vastly improve your ability to identify birds.

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.

The Crossley ID Guide: Raptors

Part of the revolutionary Crossley ID Guide series, this is the first raptor guide with lifelike scenes composed from multiple photographs--scenes that allow you to identify raptors just as the experts do. Experienced birders use the most easily observed and consistent characteristics--size, shape, behavior, probability, and general color patterns. The book's 101 scenes--including thirty-five double-page layouts--provide a complete picture of how these features are all related. Even the effects of lighting and other real-world conditions are illustrated and explained. Detailed and succinct accounts from two of North America's foremost raptor experts, Jerry Liguori and Brian Sullivan, stress the key identification features. This complete picture allows everyone from beginner to expert to understand and enjoy what he or she sees in the field. The mystique of bird identification is eliminated, allowing even novice birders to identify raptors quickly and simply.

Sibley's Eastern & Western Field Guide To Birds

Sibley soars to excellence yet again. Based on his previous volume, The Sibley Guide to Birds, these smaller regional editions provide the portability that birders require. All the qualities to be expected in a field guide are here: concise species description (status, habitat, behavior, and voice), comparisons with similar species, field marks, range maps, the inclusion of exotics, and a good binding (able to withstand both field and rugged armchair testing). Image reproduction is crisp, colors are distinct, shading shows well, and despite the very small size, range map colors are clear. A detailed index (which includes both common and scientific name) and a quick index with family-level common names (e.g., owl, sparrow, and gull) provide additional access. Sibley has accomplished the difficult task of condensing his previous guide to practical field size. Consider these essential purchases for all collections.
