New Book: Birds of Prey: Hawks, Eagles, Falcons, and Vultures of North America

Birds of Prey: Hawks, Eagles, Falcons, and Vultures of North AmericaBirds of Prey: Hawks, Eagles, Falcons, and Vultures of North America
by Pete Dunne, with Kevin T Karlson

From Houghton Mifflin Harcourt:

Always a popular group of birds, raptors symbolize freedom and fierceness, and in Pete Dunne’s definitive guide, these traits are portrayed in hundreds of stunning color photographs showing raptors up close, in flight, and in action—fighting, hunting, and nesting.

These gorgeous photographs enhance the comprehensive, authoritative text, which goes far beyond identification to cover raptor ecology, behavior, conservation, and much more.

In returning to his forte and his first love, Pete Dunne has crafted a benchmark book on raptors: the first place to turn for any question about these highly popular birds, whether it’s what they eat, where they live, or how they behave.

 

This is not an identification guide, but rather a sort-of companion to raptor ID guides (such as Dunne’s own Hawks in Flight). It is a summary of raptor natural history, but with something extra: the author’s considerable experience with these birds and his sheer writing ability. These accounts are, simply put, fun to read. So even if you already have a shelf full of raptor books or access to online resources like BNA, this book is still worth having.
