My New Crossley ID Guide!

On Friday, our mail box finally held had what I’d been anxiously awaiting, a parcel slip for the package from Birdcalls Radio. In town, my mother and I picked up the parcel, which I opened as soon as I got back to the truck. Attached to the front of the book, “The Crossley ID Guide: Eastern Birds”, was a very nice note from Chris Bosak, host of Birdcalls Radio. Thank you so very much to Mr. Crossley for donating a copy of his wonderful new book, and to Chris Bosak for hosting the contest for young birders and for being willing to ship to Canada! (By the way, here is a really good interview with Mr. Bosak that just came out.)

The Crossley ID Guide is wonderful, and has beautiful photography. I am hoping the book will help me ID some of the very tricky shorebirds we get in the spring and autumn.

Our next stop in town was the library, and I showed the guide to the librarian who is interested in ordering the guide, as well as the western guide when it’s published.
