Due to its large landmass and impressive variety of habitats, Africa has the most diverse range of raptors of any continent - with almost a third of the world's species occurring in the region. These diurnal birds of prey are infamous for their hooked beak and powerful talons, as well as their keen vision that enables them to accurately detect their prey during flight. This authoritative guide, part of the Helm Identification series, features all 106 species found on the continent, with particular emphasis on their field identification. Encompassing falcons, eagles, ospreys, kites, vultures and more, African Raptors discusses the identification of both perched and in-flight birds, bringing together the very latest research with accurate distribution maps, more than 300 colour photographs and 52 superb plates that illustrate a broad rangeof ages and racial plumage differences. This book is the ultimate reference on these remarkable birds, and will be indispensible for all birders and ornithologists with an interest in raptors.
