Stokes at Space Coast Birding Festival

Florida Scrub-Jay

Come escape the cold and see us at the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival, Titusville, FL where we will be giving a keynote talk and book signing on Tues., Jan. 26th at 6:30 pm. Here's a photo of one of the central FL special birds you might see, a beautiful Florida Scrub-Jay. In our keynote talk we will tell you how to fast-forward your birding skills by using "quantitative shape" to identify birds, an approach pioneered in our new field guide, The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America. "Quantitative shape" will help you distinguish difficult species apart faster, help you ID tricky birds when they are standing alone, and help you nail an ID when color and plumage clues fail you.
