Forthcoming Title

I heard about this guide last year and this morning I got this press
release from Princeton University Press:

Princeton University Press announces the acquisition of:
The Crossley ID Guide: Eastern Birds

Princeton, NJ --- Today, executive editor and science and reference
group publisher Robert Kirk announced the acquisition of The Crossley ID Guide: Eastern Birds by prominent photographer and birder Richard Crossley.

Featuring unique, layered images of birds in real life contexts,
The Crossley ID Guide: Eastern Birds
creates the truest representation of
the field experience; birds appear in their natural settings, behaviors
are documented, and more specimens of differing age ranges and sexes are
included on each page to ease in identification. This is quite simply
the next generation of field guides and will transform the way we look
at birds. For a preview of the book's images, please visit: http://www.crossleybirds.com/gallery/THE-I-D-GUIDE-coming-soon


The anticipated publication date for The Crossley ID Guide: Eastern
Birds
is February 2011. The initial print run will be 20,000 copies.

I understand a WESTERN version is in the works.
