Wonderful book!

Looks like a great birding guide :)

The Crossley Guide: Eastern

The Crossley Guide: Eastern Birds is my FAVORITE go-to guide. I'm excited for this one because I know it will be of quality, but also because my raptor ID skills are limited to "There's a rough-, sharp-, red-tailed.....uhhh...IhavenoideabutIknowit'sahawk."

‘Crossley ID Guide: Raptors’

This guide looks like it would be a good tool as we conduct field trips for our local Audubon Chapter in SW MO. We have a lot of different habitats that bring quite a variety of raptors. They are not always easy to ID and I think this book will be a big help.

Raptors rock!

I see birds all the time around where I live. Sometimes they catch my eye, other times I barely notice them. But every time I see a red-tailed hawk or a brown eagle I am mesmerized. It doesn't matter if it is perched on a phone pole or circling in an updraft. These birds hold such power and mystery that I can't help myself. It seems as though many other posters here feel the same way.

Year's most anticipated release

This is the book I've looked forward to for a while.

Contest to win "Crossley ID Guide: Raptors"

Every time I see a raptor it's like seeing it for the first time. Their strength as they carry off prey and yet so gentle, while caring for and feeding their young. Whether perched, diving or sworeing high above their beauty will always keep me looking towards the sky.


Discovered birding about a year ago, have been birding every day since in South Carolina. I am totally addicted.. It is exhilarating, free and you meet some great people.. Makes me feel to be alive when i see a souring Mississippi kite or a Bald Eagle.

‘Crossley ID Guide: Raptors’

I am always on the lookout for raptors. They fascinate me. This would be a great book to add to my library.

My first up close raptor experience

As a "new" birder, I have been birding for about 2 years so on my days off from work I like to get out there and experience birds common to my area and migrants passing through. About three weeks ago I was enjoying some waterfowl at a local reservoir. Almost out of nowhere a beautiful Osprey flew about 5 feet from me with a small bird clenched in its talons! Starring directly into those gorgeous yellow eyes, we made eye contact with one another . I was astonished and mesmerized all at one. The Osprey landed in a tree near by and proceeded to feast on its prey. And I was okay with that. It's easy to understand what they have to do to survive. I will never forget this experience in my life time and ever since I have become intrigued with raptors and seek them on a daily basis.
