“I don’t know about you… but field guides with raptors as they main subject…are exciting and quite interesting!. This field guide is one that gives you all you need to know about raptors for those locations ~ plain and simple ~
The authors are experienced and well known experts on raptors. The guide in mention has 304 pages 32 color plates and 213 color photographs covering 69 species of raptors from Mexico and countries from Central America.
Each one of the species are described with concise information such as area where they live or occur, type of habitat, behavior, status and distribution. Description, Etymology, and references. Then the colorful photos make a complete reality for a successful identification. The birder or photographer will not have to wait until the trip is over to know about the raptor in question! It’s much more exciting to be on the field and encounter a raptor and to ‘know” which one it is with certainty right there!…just like a Pro!”
