Raptors: Birds of Prey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A showcase for the world's most magnificent birds of prey — eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, and vultures — this comprehensive volume offers an exciting glimpse into the world of raptors, their unique adaptations, and their remarkable ability to survive despite growing threats to their environment. Compiled from data collected by the author during more than 30 years of researching, tracking, photographing, and writing about birds of prey, the book provides a complete resource on raptor species as a group, with page after page of captivating images and detailed information that go beyond the usual field guides or scientific publications on the subject. Hendrickson's striking, full-color photographs are accompanied by an illuminating text that draws on the author's personal vignettes and intimate portraits of the various species he has followed and studied over the years, as well as revealing statistics that signal a dangerous decline in many raptor populations. Naturalists, birders, photographers, and anyone concerned with the survival of these exceptional creatures will find this a compelling and invaluable volume.

Book News Annotation:

A portfolio of stunning color photographs is accompanied by a text which details these avian predators' (eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, and vultures) adaptations as well as their ability to survive in a world which continually threatens their existence. 10x95/8".
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
