A nice handy guide to hawks and owls, especially for beginners and less experienced birders... valuable reference. (Robert E. Hoopes Wildlife Activist)
Essential reading for birders in Ontario, especially the Niagara Peninsula. (Globe and Mail 2004-03-20)
Attractively illustrated with numerous excellent photographs, range maps, and brief descriptions of each age and sex class of the species considered. (Timothy C. Williams Science Books and Films)
Well organized and beautifully illustrated with many half-page images of the birds perched and in flight. (Pierre R. Gauthier Canadian Camera)
[Author] excels in teaching bird identification... especially helpful for the identification of hawks in flight... Recommended. (C. Leck Choice)
The clarity of the photographs is astounding... highly recommended without reservation... charming and highly useful. (Lynn C. Westney E-Streams)
Superb field guide... perhaps the most useful items are the comparison charts.... near-perfect photographs of a number of similar species. (Ibis [British Ornithologists' Union])
Very quickly found a new home with my special books... greatly enhance ones ability to identify hawks and owls. (Bill Carney New Hampshire Wildlife)
Remarkably concise but information-packed guide... fabulous photos of each species show the difference between a young bird and an adult, between males and females, and how to spot a particular bird type when looking up from the ground to a bird soaring high above. (Linda Turk Thunder Bay Chronicle-Journal 2004-04-11)
A great book... Everything is just superb in an handy package that slips easily into my backpack. (Valerie Hill Kitchener Record 2004-04-24)
For those enthralled by birds of prey [this book] provides an invaluable guide. (Greensburg Tribune-Review 2004-03-28)
Comprehensive information on North American birds of prey, packed in a colorful, easy-to-use format. (Nature Society News)
Excellent... Earley's concise volume is well constructed and worth adding to any falconer or birder's library. (Matthew Mullenix Hawk Chalk)
This is an excellent and useful raptor identification field guide. (Donald S. Heintzelman International Hawkwatcher)
[This book] is one of the best I have come across for identifying the species and learning something about them.... The 128-page book packs in much information and yet doesn't overwhelm the reader. I use it constantly when you call to ask about a hawk or owl identification.
