A Folding Pocket Guide to Familiar North American Raptors
What distinguishes a bird of prey? They have exceptionally good vision, a sharp, hooked beak, and powerful feet with curved, sharp talons for grasping prey. This beautifully illustrated guide highlights over 50 familiar species of vultures, eagles, falcons, kites, hawks and owls (most perching and in flight), features silhouette profiles of key species groups and includes a map identifying raptor flyways and migratory hotspots. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, pocket-sized folding guide is an excellent source of portable information and ideal for field use by naturalists of all ages. Made in the USA.
