Description: Dealing with the raptors and owls of Africa and its islands, this reference covers identification, salient features and wing patterns; descriptions of each bird at perch and in flight; and current distribution (common, less common, breeding and non-breeding), habitat, and status.
Synopsis: Covering the raptors and owls of Africa and its islands, this reference provides both photographic, illustrative and textual references to all species. The photographs are drawn from the portfolios of wildlife photographers including Nigel Dennis, Peter Steyne, Warwick Tarboton and others. The text focuses on identification, and describes each bird at perch and in flight. Salient features of adult, juvenile and, where appropriate, subadult, are described, and current distribution, habitat and status are noted. Finally, comparisons are drawn with similar species. The illustrative content depicts all plumage relevant to identification (male, female and immature, as well as dark and pale forms), helping readers distinguish the often confusing and similar wing patterns. Colour maps accompany each species account, depicting common, less common, breeding and non-breeding distribution throughout the continent. Also provided are: an illustrated glossary, and indices to the scientific, English, Afrikaans, German, French and Spanish names, including, in the English index, the alternative names by which a species is known.
Illustrations: 220 colour photographs and illustrations, 160 maps, glossary, indexes
