Review This Product
Excellent Field Guide - Highly recommended
Fri, 25 Jan 2013 | Review by: Lee G
This is truly one of the best field guides I have even come across. The author not only provides one with all the important information, but he provides multiple photos of each raptor, which makes identifying a raptor in the field so much easier. The photo's used are of high quality and the book is highly recommended. Anyone searching for a good field guide or anyone who just wants to buy a book on raptors for interest, will not be disappointed.
