Raptors in Your Pocket: A Guide to Great Plains Birds of Prey

Raptors in Your Pocket: A Guide to Great Plains Birds of Prey (Paperback)

£11.50
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

This newest addition to Iowa's successful series of laminated guides is a welcome aid to identifying the many challenging raptors of the Great Plains, from northern Minnesota to northern Texas. Illustrator Dana Gardner has created fourteen panels, showing twenty-six species perched and in flight with complete plumage variations - dark phases, light phases, and juvenile and adult male and female forms. The text also includes: length and wingspan, common and scientific names, and status, such as common resident or winter visitor. Raptors are notoriously hard to identify, and Gardner has worked hard to make this guide useful for beginning birders, as well as those more experienced in the field. Keep ""Raptors in Your Pocket"" in your car or backpack - or pocket! - during spring and fall migration and summer nesting season for help in identifying such relatively common species as the light and dark forms of the red-tailed hawk, the male and female merlin and American kestrel, and the juvenile, intermediate, and adult forms of the Swainson's hawk, as well as such uncommon visitors as white-tailed, swallow-tailed, and Mississippi kites.
