Hawks are among North America’s most iconic birds of prey. This well-illustrated guide surveys the groups of North American hawks, including a Life History profile of each species’ habitat, typical prey and nesting habits. Multiple illustrations show birds standing and in flight as well as important differences in plumage that distinguish males, females and juveniles. Also included are tips for finding species of interest and using flight behavior, calls, and other features to distinguish among similar-looking hawks. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this guide support continued educational activities by The Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Made in the USA.
