Product Details

Very good paperback. Back cover scratched. A comprehensive review of all thirty-one species of diurnal raptors that breed in the United States and Canada. This grouping includes the accipiters, buteos, eagles, kites, harriers, the osprey, the caracara, and falcons. Johnsgard gives a detailed account of each of the thirty-one species. He delineates its range and subspecies and provides a complete technical description, including identifying characteristics to aid birders with field study, a survey of habitats, food and foraging ecology, social behavior, breeding biology, and conservation status.

In addition to range maps, full-page figures, and numerous sketches, the book is handsomely illustrated by thirty-nine color plates, including thirty-seven photographs and two paintings. An appendix provides field identification views and anatomical drawings. Other appendices supply a systematic key for identifying the species, an account of the origins of their scientific and vernacular names, andd a glossary of technical terms.
