Richard Crossley, among other things the coauthor of The Shorebird Guide, has been working on a proposal with Planet Grande Productions for a birding-related television series called Wild in the City. Animal Planet likes the show but has some concerns about viewer audience as bird related programs have not done well in the past. Visit this site and click on the oriole to watch. After you’ve done watching please complete the short survey to let them know what you think. They would like to see surveys completed by Monday.

Charlie and Richard go back a long time (probably much longer than they would both like to admit) and have many stories from the British birding scene and travels to India and Nepal. They have the same aspirations about popularizing birding and the outdoors. Richard tends to keep a low profile, at least ’til now but is working on some major books and Charlie has bribed him into letting us show you a few plates of one of ‘The I.D. Guides’ so stay tuned…
