About this book

Reprint of a book published in 2007.

Birds of Prey of the Indian Subcontinent is a complete guide to the raptors of the Indian subcontinent, including India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and the Maldives. The huge diversity of habitat types and altitudinal variation gives rise to a correspondingly large avifauna.

The diurnal birds of prey are well represented – 70 species of hawk, buzzard, kite, harrier, eagle, vulture, falcon and falconet are found in the region. Each species is shown in all usual plumage forms, in flight and at rest. The species accounts cover all aspects of field identification, and also include sections on distribution, behaviour, status and population.

Media reviews

"What stands out is the remarkable depth of research on every aspect of raptor biology and the breadth of the author's own experience with and contribution to the study of Indian birds of prey. In addition, the concise and intuitive style of writing and excellent editing deserve mention Highly comprehensive and well-written, with high-quality colour photographs and illustrations, this is a landmark contribution to Indian ornithological knowledge, and as an all-encompassing reference on Indian raptors, will almost certainly never be surpassed. A must for the serious amateur and field ornithologist."
- Current Science (April 2007)

"This handsomely produced book gives one an understanding of the world raptors live in, a world as exciting as our own. It is replete with stunning plates by John Schmitt and several photographs by Rishad himself. But its strongest point, one that will stand the test of time, is its research into much unexplored territory."
- Parsiana (April 2007)

"[A] beautifully illustrated and inspiring book [An] exemplary work of scholarship."
- TLS (April 2007)

"A true tour de force [this] will be the primary reference work on the region's raptors. I highly recommend it to all ornothologists, birders and conservationists with an interest in raptors and Asian birds."
- Birding Asia (2007)
