This book explores the world of raptors in a way that will appeal to bird lovers and biology enthusiasts alike. Ornithologist Peter Capainolo and science writer Carol A. Butler define and classify raptors, explore the physical attributes of birds of prey, view how their bodies work, and explain the social and physical behaviors of these species - how they communicate, hunt, reproduce, and more.
From stories of red-tailed hawks making their homes on the ledges of Manhattan skyscrapers to their role in protecting California's vineyards from flocks of grape-loving starlings, the authors explore how these predators of the sky have adapted to the human world.
