Field Trip: Learning to Look Field Trip with Richard Crossley

Saturday, February 23 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am


This trip with Richard Crossley will be spent mostly in one spot learning to identify every bird that you see. People are often surprised by how much information they can gather when there is seemingly so little to see. Have you ever wondered how the experts identify a distant dark speck without lifting their binoculars? This trip will expose their secrets and show that the best do it by mastering the basics. But, what are the basics? Learning to Look will change the way you look at birds!

Bio: Richard Crossley is an internationally acclaimed birder, photographer and award-winning author of The Crossley ID Guide series. A Yorkshireman, he also lived in Japan, and traveled the world before settling down in his beloved Cape May, New Jersey.

After one of his frequent mid-life crises at the turn of the millennium, Richard decided it was time to spend less time obsessively birding and to focus on paying back. Sometimes called crazy (his badge of honor), wildly passionate, and driven, Richard has made concerted forays into youth birding, television, books, and other areas where he feels there is a need for American birding and conservation to improve.

Richard’s latest book, The Crossley ID Guide: Waterfowl, continues to push boundaries. It is self-published and encourages all outdoor conservation groups to see each other as one.

Richard also co-founded the global birding initiative Pledge to Fledge, Race4Birds (www.race4birds.org), and The Cape May Young Birders Club. He served on the board of directors at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary. He has contributed to most major birding publications, is frequently heard on radio, and is a sought-after public speaker.
