Su questo libro:


Birds of prey can be particularly difficult to track for a variety of reasons: - Nocturnal behavior - Remote habitats - Migratory patterns - Swift flight speeds

Hawks and Owls depicts both the subtle differences and rich diversity among these awe-inspiring birds. With crisp, clean photographs and precise identification notes, this guide makes quick and accurate classifications easier.

The families of birds includes:

  • New world vultures
  • Osprey, kites, eagles, hawks and allies
  • Caracara and falcons
  • Barn and bay owls
  • Typical owls

The information on each species is concisely organized and includes the differences between male and female, seasonal and immature plumage, morphs and distinctive markings. Color pictures and range maps accompany the text. The 180 photographs from award-winning photographers show these birds in their natural environments through the seasons. Comparison pages group similar-looking birds on a single page for quick reference.

Hawks and Owls is a sturdy, pocket-sized field guide that will be indispensable to naturalists, students and birders at all levels of experience, from Florida to Ontario.


Chris G. Earley is the Interpretive Biologist at the University of Guelph's Arboretum and author of Sparrows and Finches... and Warblers... both books are for the Great Lakes Region and Eastern North America.
