Hawks and owls, or raptors, as they are sometimes called, are charismatic birds. Ranging in size from the majestic bald eagle to the tiny northern saw-whet owl, these fascinating creatures occupy forests, woodlots, fields, and wetlands, as well as urban parks and tree-lined city streets. The adventurous peregrine falcon has even been spotted on the cliff-like skyscrapers and tall bridges of New York City and Philadelphia. Raptors are all around us-all we need to do is look for them at the right times, in the right places.Hawks and Owls of Eastern North America provides a readable, accessible introduction to our native birds of prey. Illustrated with over eighty black and white and thirty stunning color photographs, this natural history guide introduces readers to these incredible birds, describing their identifying characteristics, their behaviors, their habitats, and what's being done to protect them. In chapters on citizen science and recreation, readers will learn how they can experience raptors firsthand through study and observation. Birders, hawk and owl watchers, nature and wildlife photographers, youth groups, and high school and college students can all turn to this book as a reliable source of information on birds of prey.

About the Author:

Donald S. Heintzelman is an ornithological and wildlife consultant, writer, and photographer. A cofounder of the Wildlife Information Center, Inc., he has been active in raptor conservation for nearly fifty years. His many books include A Guide to Owl Watching in North America, The Complete Backyard Bird Watcher’s Home Companion, and The Migration of Hawks.

From Booklist:

The charismatic birds of prey are the subject of this new introductory work by a well- known raptor specialist and writer (A Guide to Hawk Watching in North America, 1999). Heintzelman, active in raptor studies for nearly 50 years, concentrates here on the eagles, hawks, and owls found east of the Mississippi River. Beginning with the ecological roles of the birds of prey, the author then discusses hawk and owl migrations. Chapters on raptor conservation, how average citizens can contribute to raptor science, and recreational raptor watching complete the general sections. Some 33 species of hawks and owls are found regularly in eastern North America, and each is profiled. Ranging in size from the tiny saw whet owl to the enormous golden eagle, and in number from the ubiquitous American kestrel to the elusive great grey owl, each species is discussed and illustrated. Basic information on habitat, distribution, food, nesting, behavior, migration, and population are provided. This excellent primer on two popular groups of birds will be in demand at all eastern libraries. Nancy Bent
