First ever raptor world field guide, which uses all of the plates from the author's 2001 Raptors of the World handbook. There is a concise, revised text to all 340 species on facing pages. Several of the plates have been reworked and repainted for this guide, and there is an updated colour distribution map for each species.
A must buy for raptor enthusiasts.
The authors are both highly-regarded ornithologists with a particular interest in raptors. They previously worked together on the award-winning Raptors of the World.
