An expanded and revised version of the best-selling Eagles, Hawks, Falcons, and Owls: A Coloring Album, Raptors contains stunning colour images of North America's most majestic birds surrounded by activities and colouring pages. Ann Price provides a brief description of what separates raptors from other birds, their evolution from prehistoric forebears, and offers a map to illustrate distribution throughout the North American continent today. The centerpiece of Raptors: The Eagles, Hawks, Falcons and Owls of North America is a gallery of 50 raptors, one per page, with a brief description of each bird's unique characteristics, lifestyle, and habitat. Keyed to colour paintings found elsewhere in the book, these pages provide an opportunity for children to create their own renderings of the plumage of these magnificent birds.
