Fairly good expose' of B&W photos that provide help in ID-ing raptors and such!
  • Jerdodov
Somewhat dated graphically, but overhead raptor identification generally comes down to a black-and-white view of the bird so color clues are of limited help. The shape and behavior clues are as helpful as it gets. These authors wrote the definitive book on this subject!
  • Arador
great book
  • Akta
This book was recommended to me by a local bird expert, as one of the best books to use in learning to identify hawks. It's a useful book, with clear illustrations and very detailed descriptions.

This is not a book that will teach you everything and again you will not be able to use this book alone as it does not replace a field guide.
