The most comprehensive guide to African raptors ever published.
Africa has the most diverse range of raptors of any continent, with almost a third of the world’s species occurring in the region. This comprehensive new book treats all of these species in impressive detail, with emphasis on their field identification.
A full range of plumages is illustrated for each species, with artwork by raptor specialist Rob Davies. The authoritative text treats the identification of both perched and in-flight birds, and covers all major races, ages, plumages and morphs. These texts are accompanied by up-to-date distribution maps and a range of fabulous colour photographs from some of the world’s leading bird photographers, again covering as broad a range of ages and subspecies as possible.
This new Helm Identification Guide will be an essential reference for all birders and ornithologists with an interest in raptors.
