Crossley presents beautiful life-like scenes of British and Irish birds that look like paintings, but are based on photographs.
Each species is shown in their natural habit and shows many individual birds, each at a different distance or angle from the viewer, to simulate what you might actually see in the field. He includes different plumages, sexes, and ages,as well birds in flight, on the water or standing.
Crossley aims to help you be a better birder. By studying these scenes, he feels you can learn to identify birds like a pro.
He wants you to observe carefully when birding and base your identification of the birds you see on their basic size, structure, shape and behavior.
