This is an Italian translation of "A Field Guide to the Raptors of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa", which was published in 1999 by Oxford University Press.
In this comprehensive identification guide, William Clark presents the latest information on tried and tested field marks for identifying the diurnal raptors of the Western Palearctic region. Forty-eight stunning colour plates, especially painted for this volume by artist N. John Schmitt, depict all the plumages for every raptor, both regularly occurring and vagrant. The plates are augmented by a forty-page colour photograph section. The accompanying text provides the reader with essential clues to identification: detailed plumage descriptions for each age, sex, and colour morph; sections describing flight, moult, behaviour, and distribution for every species; sections on similar species--notoriously difficult to identify--and how to distinguish them. Each account concludes with the range of measurements for length, wing span, and weight.
