Raptors are notoriously hard to identify, even if seen well, and represent perhaps the toughest of all ID challenges for birders.
This book is the ultimate flight-identification guide for the raptors of the Western Palearctic, covering Europe, North Africa, the Middle East (including Arabia) to Central Asia. It provides identification information for all 60 species that regularly occur in the region, to sub-specific level. The text covers every plumage and age in detail, with each species account accompanied by a range of photographs covering all the principal plumages.
Based on this stunning photographic coverage, most of which has never been published before, this book represents a landmark in bird identification books and a major work for all raptor enthusiasts.
