Birds of Prey: Hawks, Eagles, Falcons, and Vultures of North America
Birds of Prey: Hawks, Eagles, Falcons, and Vultures of North America4 1 5 Forfatter: Pete Dunne, Kevin T. Karlson
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.
“Birds of Prey is exhaustively researched and complemented by a stunning collection of photos, but the real highlight is…Dunne’s writing. He weaves together personal anecdotes, historical accounts, and technical information to create something greater than the sum of all its parts: a beautiful, authoritative, and engagingly written guide to the natural history of North American hawks. ”—David Sibley, author of The Sibley Guide to Birds
“Books about raptors used to fall into two major categories: field guides versus nature writing. No more!… Dunne’s new book skillfully conjoins those two genres. Life a good field guide, Birds of Prey is authoritative and utilitarian, and like our finest nature writing, Dunne’s prose is lyrical, sensitive, and full of feeling. ”—Ted Floyd, editor, Birding
