Reviews

This new field guide covers all of the world's kites, vultures, harriers, hawks, buzzards, eagles, and falcons.

Based on essential sections of the widely acclaimed handbook Raptors of the World by the same authors, but with updated text, maps, and plates, it shows every species in a selection of different plumages, with concise facing texts and distribution maps.

It provides an easy-to-use and portable reference to one of the world's largest, most popular, and most challenging avian groups.
