About: Birds of Prey of Afrika and its Islands

Birds of Prey of Afrika and its Islands, a splendidly comprehensive guide, profiles each of the more than 100 species of diurnal raptor and 40-plus species of owl recorded on the continent and its adjacent islands, including Madagascar, the Comores, the Mascarenes and the Seychelles. Almost every species enjoys double-page spread coverage, which comprises a full description of the bird's appearance, its distinctive behaviour, distribution, habitat and status. Superbly executed illustrations and photographs show, in fine detail, the bird at perch and in flight, and the different sex, age-class and plumage forms. The bird profiles arc colour- and con-coded for quick reference; a summary of key features, a distribution map and a list of similar species arc useful aids to quick identification. Other elements of the hook include a general introduction to the classification and study of birds of prey, a map and overview of the main habitats in Africa, and a comprehensive series of indexes to the English, scientific, French, German, Spanish and Afrikaans names of each bird.
