Fierce, bold, and beautiful, falcons hold a special place in the hearts of people. In Falcons of North America, renowned raptor advocate and environmental educator Kate Davis opens a door into the lives of these extraordinary, often imperiled birds of prey. With contagious enthusiasm, Davis details the lives of North America??s six species of true falcons ??" American Kestrel, Merlin, Aplomado Falcon, Prairie Falcon, Peregrine Falcon, and Gyrfalcon.
“Kate used her experience as a falconer, researcher, rehabilitator, educator, conservationist, and artist to give us an insight into how falcons live and their relationships with humankind,” writes William S. (Bill) Clark, author of The Peterson Field Guide to Hawks of North America.
More than 200 stunning color photographs by award-winning wildlife photographers Rob Palmer and Nick Dunlop, 13 illustrations by the author, and range maps for each species make Falcons of North America not only a valuable addition to any bird lover??s library, but also a collection of great art.
