Clay Sutton is a freelance writer, naturalist, lecturer, and tour leader.From Booklist:
The Suttons' comprehensive guide to hawk and eagle watching conveys their enthusiasm for these powerful animals. Reviewing raptors in detail, species by species, it clearly presents the birds' characteristics, their ranges, and any habits that influence spotting strategies, and it recommends and describes specific observation locations across North America. The many photographs and illustrations assist in species differentiation as they add eye appeal, and the Suttons also provide information on suitable spotting equipment and techniques. Sure to kindle enthusiasm for these birds in novice bird-watchers of all ages and provide in-depth raptor lore for all bird-watchers, the Suttons' effort is commended to all public libraries.
