Lavishly illustrated and such a broad spectrum of birds shown, As a relatively frequent visit to falconry centres and a particular fan of the Hawk Conservancy Trust at Andover, I thought I had seen a great many varieties but this book demonstrates how few species I have seen. Usefully arranged into different types of bird of prey this book looks at vultures, falcons, eagles and owls etc after a useful introduction setting out what defines a bird of prey or raptor. There are many different types of photograph from those in flight to those perched as well as detailed up close shots. This book is great for anyone who loves wildlife, it would also be a useful reference book for artists as there is so much to inspire you when going through it. There is a fairly short caption with each bird too, giving enough information, those who want more will be motivated to seek it out. Hopefully when people realise more about the importance of this group of birds they will know they need our protection more than ever.
