Bird enthusiasts of all ages will welcome this fun approach to learning about the raptors of North America. Educators, children, and beginning birders will find creative ways to learn about the birds and their distinguishing characteristics with the activities and coloring exercises in this book, which features sections on vultures, osprey, kites, harriers, eagles, hawks, owls, and falcons.
Anne Price provides extensive facts and descriptions on each species. The short essays describe how birds descended from dinosaurs, how the art of falconry began, how to distinguish a raptor from other birds, and how each species is scientifically classified. The Raptors of North America provides a creative and educational overview of the majestic birds found throughout North America and encourages us to continue exploring the birds we find in our own backyards and beyond.
