KLIATTThis book will appeal to all of the following groups: lovers of beautiful photography, lovers of nature, birdwatchers, historians, poets and scientists. It is an incredibly complete compilation of information about raptors, presented in a beautiful package with glossy pages and glorious photos. Weidensaul has been fascinated by raptors since he was a young child and now is the author of more than 24 natural history books. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the book is the author's use of charts that illustrate every detail and comparison among the raptors one can think of: wintering areas, raptors that practice piracy, average breeding territory size, and bald eagle concentrations, for example.
