A very beautiful raptor - Falcons...A description of a falcon on the hunt (from Falcons of North America by Kate Davis):
"There is nothing like it. Nothing on earth."
"Wow, what a book"
"After checking the customer reviews and looking at the picture of the front cover of Falcons of North America, I expected a pleasant book with nice photos and adequate text; by the time I had finished reading the first chapter, I realized I had in my hands a truly extraordinary book.
The photographs are stunning as well as informative and are well integrated into each chapter. The text is substantive, interesting and very well written. For example, the chapter on falcon anatomy and physiology is presented with great clarity and the chapter on falcon threats is remarkably current."--Ken Mirman (Amazon Reviewer)
