Birds of Prey by Robin Kerrod

This book helps you learn about eagles, owls, falcons, hawks and other powerful predators of the air, in 190 exciting pictures. You can find out about every aspect of these amazing creatures - their keen eyesight, how hawks hunt their prey, how vultures make ingenious use of tools, and much more. It features stunning wildlife photographs, plus illustrations and detailed cross-sections. Focus features take a closer look at individual species or a key element of their lives - marvel at the soaring eagle and the agile owl, and witness the osprey expertly catching its fish supper. It is an ideal reference at home and school for ages 8 to 12. Birds of prey are among the most powerful and majestic predators on Earth. The majority of them hunt by day. These include eagles, falcons, hawks and vultures. Others, such as owls, are active at night. Discover their world through the fascinating and accessible information in this book, together with dramatic images by top wildlife photographers. Myth boxes explore stories about birds of prey from many cultures and ages, while 'Did You Know?' facts provide little-known truths about these creatures with which you can impress your friends and family.
