The Birds of Prey of Australia is a comprehensive guide to the wide variety of raptors indigenous to Australia. Included in this easy to use field guide are some of the most spectacular birds found anywhere in the world: eagles, falcons, goshawks, and harriers all feature prominently in this fully illustrated book. Written with both amateur bird watchers and professional ornithologists in mind, Stephen Debus highlights many unique, notable raptors, including those most at risk.
Like its predecessor, Handbook of Australian, New Zealand and Antarctic Birds: Volume 2, The Birds of Prey of Australia is an exhaustive review. Included are twenty-four full color plates and fifty black and white illustrations and line drawings, depicting the flight, posture, display, feeding and hunting patterns, and courtship rituals of some of the world's most amazing birds. Also provided are profiles of the biology of each species.
