5.0 out of 5 stars A Must for Bird of Prey Enthusiasts, 3 July 2007
By

This review is from: The Pocket Guide to Birds of Prey of Britain and Europe (Hardcover)
There are literally hundreds of bird identification books on the bookshelves and to be fair most of them are excellent, obviously some are more comprehensive than others and cater for all tastes from the casual watcher right through to the enthusiast. This particular book is more of a specialist book for the bird of prey enthusiast.

"The Pocket Guide to the Birds of Prey of Britain and Europe" explores the different families of the birds of prey, giving detailed habitat, feeding, and breeding information for each bird featured. The book goes into great detail on the individual birds which include of course hawks, owls, eagles, harriers, buzzards, vultures, falcons, shrikes and kites Organized in the nine raptor families the book is well-researched and lots of up-to-date information is given for each species, including most importantly, how to correctly identify the bird.

There is a combination of drawings and photographs. I know that some bird enthusiasts much prefer photographs, but to my way of thinking it is sometimes much easier to identify a bird from a good drawing and the drawings in this book are excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pocket Book...Birds of Prey, 22 April 2010

Excellent book that does what it says on the cover. Detail throughout is good & just enough to identify types & flight patterns. Pictures & text are clear & uncluttered, allowing enough detail for what is after all a pocket size book. I was not looking for a concise backgound on each species, purely a visual indication of what is male/female recognition, which this book serves perfectly.

Liked the size and clarity and found it handy as a quick guide to look at the differences in the raptors. Found the information a bit basic but it was worth the purchase but not as comprehensive as other books.

My wife and I got this book as a birthday present for a long time friend, and she loved it! So if she's a "Happy Camper", then the book must be great!
