Birds of Prey: Hawks, Eagles, Falcons, and Vultures of North America$13.69
“Dunne’s fascination with raptors is evident across his whole body of work, and this volume is fitting capstone to a love affair that spawned both Hawks in Flight and The Wind Masters. It’s hard to imagine how Dunne could cram any more information into book form (although if he decides to try I have a feeling I’ll end up pleasantly surprised.) It’s also a beautiful book, thoroughly illustrated with photos curated by Kevin T. Karlson. This is one of those volumes that belongs on every birder’s shelf”

A visually stunning, comprehensive resource on North America’s birds of prey.
Always a popular group of birds, raptors symbolize freedom and fierceness, and in Pete Dunne’s definitive guide, these traits are portrayed in hundreds of stunning color photographs showing raptors up close, in flight, and in action—fighting, hunting, and nesting.
These gorgeous photographs enhance the comprehensive, authoritative text, which goes far beyond identification to cover raptor ecology, behavior, conservation, and much more.
In returning to his forte and his first love, Pete Dunne has crafted a benchmark book on raptors: the first place to turn for any question about these highly popular birds, whether it’s what they eat, where they live, or how they behave.
