Beautifully illustrated book with much description of looks, size, habitat, prey and nesting/mating habits of most (perhaps all?) of the predatorial birds of North America. Owls, Falcons, Eagles, Hawks, Kites etc and how to tell the difference from its body and wing shape while flying. A must read for all bird-lovers, young and old!
