Maps showing the distribution of each species, including summer and winter ranges and migrations routes of the migrant species. Descriptions of the birds' habitats, specializations, courtship, mating and family behaviour. A concise introduction explaining the evolution and family relationships of the birds of prey, and the way in which they are classified. Birds of Prey is a tribute to these magnificent aerial hunters. It is also a timely reminder that without urgent conservation measures some of them may very soon be lost forever from the face of the earth.
