About this book

Language: Multilingual in English, German, Italian and Polish

Written in four languages, this beautifully illustrated book is a study of the sea eagle, one of the most interesting and at the same time mysterious species of the great birds of prey in Europe. The first part of the book deals with habitat, distribution, past and present situations of the White-tailed sea eagle in Europe and Poland. The second part is devoted purely to biological and ethological matters while the third part shows the various forms which the relationship between eagle and man has taken in Poland.

"This book is the crown on a long hard four years work. It is the synthesis of his [Volponi's] work in the field and his great passion and love for nature. It is a brilliant study of the sea eagle."
- Tadeusz Chrzanowski, Specialist in Ecology and Forest Education, Torun, Poland
