The author first discusses the evolutionary history of raptors and the morphological features they share, then in succeeding chapters details their comparative ecology, food and foraging, behavior, and reproductive biology. Individual species accounts include discussion of geographic range, weights and measurements, in-hand and in-field identification characters, subspecies, plumage variations, ecology, behavior, and breeding biology. Color photographs, two paintings, and detailed line drawings show internal and external anatomy, behavior, and field-identification characters. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
