For me, birding is as much about enjoying the birdscapes as it is about seeing the birds themselves.
Crossley ID Raptor Guide are the amazing birdscape shots. I would buy this book just for the amazing birdscapes shown in the plates. Every time I pick it up, I just sit there gazing at these amazing scenes. And as I look at them, I can't help but enjoy trying to figure out where these shots were actually taken. Some I recognize, some I can guess at.
So I thought I would share the joy. Here are seven birdscapes from the guide. Whoever can most accurately guess where these shots were taken will win a new copy of the Crossley ID Raptor Guide. Just email me your guesses, with as much detail as possible (more fine print at the bottom of this post) to Birdchaser AT hotmail DOT com by the end of Thursday, April 4.
Enjoy and good luck!
