About this book

From an extinct giant eagle and an owl that sounded like the devil, to the morepork that can be heard calling at night, the falcon that appears on New Zealand's $20 note and the hawks that can be seen swooping on the grisly remains of dead critters on the road, The Hunters takes a close look at these fascinating birds and the people who are working to keep the species that are still with us safe. Filled with facts and great stories of rescued birds being nursed back to health, The Hunters also has many amazing close-up photographs. Find out about the ancient art of falconry, how damaged feathers critical for flying can be replaced with temporary ones, how you can help an injured bird, and how birds can be released back into the wild.
