About this book

The Black or Verreaux's Eagle is renowned for its aerial mastery, and was called `the finest of the genus Aquila' by the late Leslie Brown. It is found over much of Africa, and in places occurs in great concentrations. This important monograph is based on a 21-year field study, and includes an abundance of information on distribution, appearance and flight patterns, behaviour, territoriality, breeding, dispersal, survival rate, and relations with other raptor species, mammals, reptiles and man. The book concludes with a review of this bird's future.
