Gr. 4-7. This large-format book provides a fine overview of North American raptors, birds of prey distinguished by their excellent eyesight, sharp talons, and hooked beaks. After describing their characteristics and behavior, the book introduces individual species within family groups: vultures, hawks, falcons, barn owls, and true owls. A typical page in this section comprises common and scientific names of the bird, a paragraph of information that differentiates it from other birds, two photos, a flight silhouette, a range map, and notations of its size, call, habitat, migration, and favorite foods. There is also advice on bird-watching and efforts to save endangered species. Well-designed projects (from dissecting an owl pellet to making a nestbox) are followed by a glossary and extensive lists of hawk-watching sites, raptor centers, banding demonstration sites, books, videos, organizations, and Web sites related to birds in general and raptors in particular. Illustrated with colored ink-and-wash pictures as well as photos. Carolyn PhelanCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
