Hawks & Owls of Eastern North America
Second Edition-Revised & Updated
Written by Chris G. Earley
With their legendary nocturnal behavior, a preference for remote habitats, changing migratory patterns, and swift flight speeds, birds of prey are particularly difficult to identify and track. Hawks and Owls of Eastern North America depicts the subtle differences and rich diversity among these magnificent birds. Precise identification notes and more than 200 crisp, clean photographs aid in quick and accurate classifications of a variety of raptors.
The book profiles 39 species among the New World vultures, osprey, kites, eagles, hawks and allies, falcons, owls and vagrants.
A number of features make this book especially useful:
Descriptions are concisely organized and show sexual dimorphism, seasonal and immature plumage, and distinctive markings
Photographs show the birds in their natural environments through the seasons
Range maps show where each species is normally found, increasing the probability of a sighting
Comparison charts with "look-alike" birds grouped on a single page are a distinct advantage when trying to identify a quick-flying hawk.
With 16 additional new pages and over 200 photographs, this edition of Hawks and Owls of Eastern North America is indispensable to naturalists and birders.
