This guide presents hawks, falcons, ospreys, eagles, kites, owls, and vultures. Lethal talons, hooked beaks, and exceptional eyesight are all common to these majestic predators.
Reminiscent of nineteenth-century botanical prints, the full-color illustrations in these small nature guides are miniature watercolors, as delightful to look at as they are accurate. Beneath each illustration the reader will find the popular and scientific names, size, range, and a concise description of the habitat or an interesting bit of lore. Ideal for the backpacker or dayhiker, the books fit handily in the pocket.
