Product description

From Booklist

Raptors--birds of prey--have always excited the imagination. The powerful eagles, meteoric falcons, and secretive owls have all fascinated humans for millennia. Ornithologists Snyder (authors of The California Condor, 2000) have produced a sumptuous examination of the 34 species of diurnal and 19 species of nocturnal raptors found in North America. Beginning with the vultures, and with the continent's largest raptor, the California condor, the Snyders write of the other diurnal birds of prey--the kites, harriers, accipiters, buteos, ospreys, eagles, falcons, and caracaras. The nocturnal owls then follow. Each species is shown with a range map of its distribution. Species accounts provide basic natural history information, written in a firsthand style that emphasizes the Snyders' research but that also refers to details gleaned from the scientific literature. This personal writing style not only makes for an easily digested reference work but also is very enjoyable as pleasure reading. Illustrated throughout with beautiful clear photographs taken by the Snyders, this is a highly recommended book for every library. Nancy Bent

Review

Birding Business, April 2007

“The photos are astonishing – there are unique, never-before-seen images of many species nesting, hunting, preening and resting. The Snyders have spent a major portion of their lives helping to restore the California Condor, and the text and photos in this section are the best I’ve read about and seen about this complex subject. Although published in oversized format, this is not a ‘coffee table’ book: Raptors of North America should be on the bookshelf of anyone with an interest in raptors and their conservation.”


Choice, August 2007
“All in all, this attractive book, full of personal experiences, is highly suitable for laypersons … Recommended, lower/upper-level undergraduates and general readers.”

Times Union (Albany, NY)

“A scenic, informational journey through New York state.”

Choice, August 2007

“This attractive book, full of personal experiences, is highly suitable for laypersons … Recommended: Lower/upper-level undergraduates and general readers.”



California BookWatch, November 2006

An outstanding reference, this provides both the scholarly natural history references and the large-size photos lacking in more diminutive coverage.”
