About this book

The Gyrfalcon is the world's largest falcon. It inhabits the inhospitable Arctic Taiga, from Greenland and Iceland right across Siberia and northern Canada. Its plumage varies from a dark mottled grey to pure white. Like other titles in this series, this book covers all aspects of the species' biology, taxonomy, distribution, status and historical associations with man. The result is an exhaustively researched and readable biography of a spectacular bird, illustrated throughout with photographs and line drawings.

Media reviews

a good read, presenting much previously inaccessible information, as well as some interesting insights into some of the most remote and inhospitable places on earth. Ian Newton British Birds (Feb 2006) "A well-writen and a beautifully produced book." Ornithos (2005) "A fascinating read." BTO News (Jan/Feb 2006) "Well writen and informative...This book is highly recommeneded...In my opinion, it is equal to the best in single-species raptor books yet published." William S Clark Birdwatch (March 2006) "There is no doubt that this is a scholarly work and probably one of the most valuable and comprehensive on this species." Scottish Bird News (December 2005)
