Describes the anatomy, hunting techniques, mating, nesting, and eating habits of birds of prey. Get a bird's-eye view of the amazing world of raptors--from the majestic falcon, hawk, and eagle to the stealthy owl and the formidable vulture. This fascinating overview examines the development, anatomy, mating and nesting habits of birds of prey, as well as their techniques for stalking, catching and killing their quarry. Follow the life of a bird of prey, from egg to fluffy chick to full adulthood. Learn how fast a peregrine falcon can fly or how ospreys dive for fish on the water's surface. Find out how their hollow bones and extraordinary feathers and wings determine how fast and far different types of birds can fly. From forests to deserts, birds of prey thrive and survive in a wide range of environments because of their ability to adapt to the world around them.
