About this book

Language: French

This is a French translation of Collins Birds of Prey.

This is the updated 3rd edition of this excellent reference guide to birds of prey. The most complete guide to the 49 species of birds of prey (eagles, vultures, hawks, buzzards, osprey and falcons) found in Europe. Every species has a comprehensive descriptive entry, with the most up-to-date information on population, distribution, status, behaviour, habitat, voice, breeding biology, food and hunting techniques. In addition, a separate section deals with the more detailed identification of the species – major ID characteristics, proportions, regional variations, young, juvenile and adult variation, ID of perched birds, ID of flying birds and a section on other similar species that can be easily confused.

Illustrated with 55 maps, nearly 200 photographs and nearly 1000 illustrations, Guide des Rapaces Diurnes is essential reading for anyone interested in the birds of prey of Europe.
