About this book

Hawks are notoriously difficult to study on migration for they usually fly at very high altitudes, often over water. This book is the result of ten years study, using direct observation and radar techniques, to obtain a much more accurate understanding of hawk migratory behaviour and the decisions they make in flight. The author integrates this with raptor ecology, physiology, evolution and nonmigratory behaviour.
