Hawks - probably the most popular birds among birders - are notoriously difficult to identify using hte traditional field-mark method. Hawks in Flight shows how to recognize hawks the way we often recognize our friends at a distance: by their genral body shape, the way they move, and hte places they are most likely to be seen.
PEte Dunne's clear, lively text brings to life each species' distinctive characteristics, and their visual essence is captured in David Sibley's elegant drawings and Clay Sutton's photographs.
Hawks in Flight covers the twenty-three (23) most common diurnal raptors of North America, including buteos, accipters, falcons, kites, eagles, vultures, and the osprey and harrier.
