Overview

Hawks and owls, or raptors, as they are sometimes called, are charismatic birds. Ranging in size from the majestic Bald Eagle to the tiny Northern Saw-whet Owl, these fascinating creatures occupy forests, woodlots, fields, and wetlands, as well as urban parks and tree-lined city streets. The adventurous Peregrine Falcon has even been spotted on the clifflike skyscrapers and tall bridges of New York City and Philadelphia. Raptors are all around us -- all we need to do is look for them at the right times, in the right places.

Hawks and Owls of Eastern North America provides an enjoyable and informative introduction to these incredible birds. Illustrated with more than eighty black and white and thirty stunning color photographs, it describes their identifying characteristics, behaviors, habitats, and what's being done to protect them. In chapters on citizen science and recreation, readers will also learn how they can experience raptors firsthand through study and observation.

Birders, hawk and owl watchers, nature and wildlife photographers, youth groups, and high school and college students can all turn to this book as an essential resource on these remarkable birds of prey.
