Product description

Venture into the world of the fierce and fascinating birds of prey with this book, packed full of facts and stunning photography.

Birds of Prey – or raptors – are some of the most captivating bird species in the world. Think of eagles and condors, vultures, hawks and kites, but also owls and ospreys. Think of the peregrine falcon, which, reaching speeds of up to 320km/h (200mph), is the world’s fastest animal – when diving.

From the New World Caracaras to the Oriental Hobby, the Northern Goshawk to the Swamp Harrier to the European Merlin, Birds of Prey explores the fascinating lifecycles, habitats, diets and, where applicable, migratory patterns, of more than 100 species from all around the world.

They primarily hunt and feed on vertebrates that are large relative to the hunter. They have keen eyesight, being able to spot their prey from great distances, and strong feet equipped with talons for grasping or killing prey, and powerful, curved beaks for tearing flesh. In addition to hunting live prey, most also eat carrion, at least occasionally, and vultures and condors eat carrion as their main food source.

With full captions explaining how the species hunt and feed, nest and rear their young, Birds of Prey is a brilliant examination in 240 outstanding colour photographs.
