About this book

Language: Spanish

Raptors are notoriously hard to identify, even if seen well. Contrary to expectation, it is actually easier to identify raptors in flight, rather than perched, and it is fortunate that most raptors are usually seen in flight! This is the ultimate flight-identification guide to Western Palearctic raptors. It covers 60+ species, and goes to subspecific level wherever needed. The geographical area covered is Europe, North Africa, the Middle East including the Arabian Peninsula, and east to Central Asia.

This is a photographic guide with stunning images, most of which have been reserved for Identificación en Vuelo de Aves Rapaces and have never been published before. The thorough text covers every plumage and age in breathtaking detail, and each species are illustrated with a range of photographs covering all the principal plumages.

Summary in Spanish:
Identificación en Vuelo de Aves Rapaces presenta la información más actualizada para hacer frente a los retos de la identificación de estas aves en Europa, África del Norte y Oriente Medio. El texto informativo abarca en detalle los temas de la muda y de los plumajes, así como de la variación, la distribución y el comportamiento de las rapaces. Las más de 1.100 fotografías, que constituyen la colección más completa de fotografías publicadas hasta el presente de rapaces del Paleártico occidental, se han elegido cuidadosamente para retratar a las aves de la forma más real posible, en su hábitat natural, sin olvidar la necesidad de mostrar detalles cruciales que permitan la determinación de su edad y su sexo. Las distintas formas geográficas y el tema de la hibridación de especies se presentan con mayor profundidad que en cualquier libro anterior de este tipo.
