About this book

Language: French

Raptors are notoriously hard to identify, even if seen well. Contrary to expectation, it is actually easier to identify raptors in flight, rather than perched, and it is fortunate that most raptors are usually seen in flight! This is the ultimate flight-identification guide to Western Palearctic raptors. It covers 60+ species, and goes to subspecific level wherever needed. The geographical area covered is Europe, North Africa, the Middle East including the Arabian Peninsula, and east to Central Asia.

This is a photographic guide with stunning images, most of which have been reserved for Flight Identification of Raptors of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East and have never been published before. The thorough text covers every plumage and age in breathtaking detail, and each species are illustrated with a range of photographs covering all the principal plumages.

Summary in French:
Les rapaces sont parmi les oiseaux les plus difficiles à reconnaitre. Ce guide pratique, abondamment illustré, est consacré à l’identification en vol des 60 espèces visibles dans le Paléarctique occidental, des plus communes à celles dont la présence est rare voire marginale. L’ouvrage couvre l’Europe, l’Afrique du Nord, le Moyen-Orient (péninsule arabique incluse) jusqu’à l’Asie centrale.

Pour chaque espèce, le texte traite en détail de la mue et des différents plumages liés à l’âge et au sexe, ainsi que d’autres aspects tels que les variations individuelles ou géographiques de coloration, la répartition et le comportement.

Un ensemble unique de 1100 photographies présente ces différents plumages et donne une idée précise de leurs variations connues. La plupart des problèmes d’identification peuvent être résolus en consultant simplement les images et leurs légendes, le texte principal servant de référence détaillée pour les cas les plus difficiles.

Les différentes sous-espèces et formes géographiques, ainsi que la problématique de l’hybridation entre certaines espèces (aigles, busards, milans…) sont plus détaillées que dans tous les autres livres de ce genre publiés à ce jour.
