About: First Field Guide to Birds of Prey of Southern Africa

Birds of prey or raptors are predators that feed on meat. They have powerful feet with sharp talons for killing their prey, and hooked beaks for tearing their food. These are among the most exciting and impressive of all birds. Southern Africa has a rich diversity of raptors. Seventy-one species of diurnal raptors and 12 species of owls occur here. Some of the diurnal raptors are migrants that only visit our region during summer. First Field Guide to Birds of Prey of Southern Africa covers 46 of the commonest species, omitting those that occur in only a small part of the region, the very rare vagrants, and the very secretive species unlikely to be seen by the casual bird-watcher. Raptors are threatened by human activities and many need to be protected. Most birds of prey are restricted to specific habitats.
