About this book

The most complete guide to the 49 species of bird of prey (eagles, vultures, hawks, buzzards, osprey and falcons) found in Europe. Every species has a comprehensive descriptive entry, with the most up-to-date information on population, distribution, status, behaviour, habitat, voice, breeding biology, food and hunting techniques. In addition, a separate section deals with the more detailed identification of the species – major ID characteristics, proportions, regional variations, young, juvenile and adult variation, ID of perched birds, ID of flying birds and a section on other similar species that can be easily confused.

Illustrated with 55 maps, nearly 200 photographs and nearly 1,000 illustrations, Collins Birds of Prey is essential reading for anyone interested in the birds of prey of Europe.

Translated from the Danish edition (2004).

Benny Gensbol - a name you'll want to treasure
by Doug Mackenzie Dodds in UK http://theblackrabbitwarren.blogspot.com/
I've had Benny Gensbol books (on birds of prey) for twenty odd years now - and this one is no different. This book is useful for UK based observations of raptors or on holiday (at least in europe). It also is a mine of interesting information - population estimates, breeding and wintering ranges, superb photos, flight ID plates.

I look no further than Benny Gensbol for my bird of prey books - highly recommended.
