Crossley ID Guide - Helps Train Your Brain To Recognise Birds

Crossley Id Guide - Book CoverThe Crossley ID Guide: Eastern Birds makes bird identification much easier.  Richard Crossley has used over 10,000 of his own photographs to make composite images for over 660 species found in the USA and Canada.  The plates show the birds in natural surroundings as one is likely to find them in the field, from various angles - perched, flying past, close up and afar. The images include male, females, juvis, adults and show their plumage changes over the seasons.  

This is a new approach to bird identification.  In pages 22-27 Crossley explains how the book should be used. Bird Topography is covered in pages 28 - 31 and the book starts with a visual size guide to help the reader understand the proportions of the birds in relation to each other. 

A lover of pictures, the author states he doesn't like text and prefers to use vibrant, colourful images to help train the brain to recognise the different shapes of the birds in their most likely to be seen  scenarios.

Antarctic Wildlife: A Visitor's Guide - Book Review


Antarctic Wildlife - Book cover


The Antarctic has become a popular tourist destination. Last year over 80,000 people took the opportunity to cruise around the region with numbers increasing each year.

James Lowen's book is a timely guide.  The paperback flexicover makes it easy and lightweight to carry around.  There are hundreds of superb photographs covering 83 species of birds. Identification of the 24 species of dolphins and whales found in the regions of the Beagle Channel, the Drake Passage and the Antarctic Peninsula are also covered along with 8 species of seals.

The book is also a handy guide for people planning a trip to the region as it discusses the seasonal highlights and the best time to view the different species. 'Where to look' and 'Talking Points' also add insights about each species.

If you're planning a trip to the Antarctic make sure that you take this book with you.  I certainly will.
