Raptors

The Eagles, Hawks, Falcons, and Owls of North America

Book Description

An expanded and revised version of the best-selling Eagles, Hawks, Falcons, and Owls: A Coloring Album, Raptors contains stunning color images of North America's most majestic birds surrounded by activities and coloring pages. Ann Price provides a brief description of what separates raptors from other birds, their evolution from prehistoric forebears, and offers a map to illustrate distribution throughout the North American continent today. The centerpiece of the book is a gallery of 50 raptors, one per page, with a brief description of each bird's unique characteristics, lifestyle, and habitat. Keyed to color paintings found elsewhere in the book, these pages provide an opportunity for children to create their own renderings of the plumage of these magnificent birds.
