About this book

Language: Spanish

Hunters of the night and twilight, birds of the order Strigiformes see in the dark, fly silently, and suddenly pounce on unsuspecting prey. Revered in ancient Greece, feared and persecuted in the Middle Ages, they have always aroused great interest in humans. This guide, which includes more than 200 splendid colour photographs, provides an overview of all the nocturnal birds of prey present in Europe

A comprehensive introduction presents some of the main characteristics of Strigiformes, from mimetic plumage to peculiar pellets, from their extraordinary sight and hearing to their countershading camouflage. Ideal for recognizing and identifying all nocturnal birds of prey, such as owls, barn owls and owlets. It exhaustively describes the morphology, habitat and behaviour for each species. Also plumage, song, pellets and nests. Includes about 10 colour photographs for each species for easy identification. Contains distribution maps.

The final chapters complete the manual, deepening, among other topics, territorial behaviour, hunting techniques, mobbing and conservation.

Summary in Spanish:
Cazadores nocturnos y crepusculares, los estringiformes ven en la oscuridad, vuelan en silencio y de repente se abalanzan sobre la presa desprevenida. Veneradas en la antigua Grecia, temidos y perseguidos en la Edad Media, siempre han despertado un gran interés en el ser humano. Esta guía, que incluye más de 200 espléndidas fotografías en color, aporta una visión general de todas las aves rapaces nocturnas presentes en Europa.

Una completa introducción presenta algunas de las características principales de los estringiformes, desde el plumaje mimético hasta las peculiares egagrópilas, desde la vista y la audición extraordinarias, hasta el camuflaje por contrasombreado. Ideal para reconocer e identificar todas las rapaces nocturnas, como búhos, lechuzas y mochuelos. Describe de forma exhaustiva para cada especie la morfología, hábitat y comportamiento. También el plumaje, canto, egagrópilas y nidos. Incluye unas 10 fotografías en color para cada especie para una identificación fácil. Contiene mapas de distribución.

Los capítulos finales completan el manual, profundizando, entre otros temas, en el comportamiento territorial, las técnicas de caza, el mobbing y la conservación.
