Overview

A magnificent display of North America's regal wonders

The majestic raptors of North America are artfully displayed in this premium wall poster. Illustrated by the world’s premiere bird artist, this work features illustrations of 32 species of raptors, including the black vulture, the snail kite, the ferruginous hawk, the American kestrel, and the peregrine falcon. Juveniles, adults, and regional populations of each species are shown in relative scale, both perched and in flight—to give the viewer an impression of the differences in sizes. This splendid piece of artwork makes an ideal gift for both birdwatchers interested in identifying raptors and casual observers alike.

Reviews

"David Sibley's new Field Guide to Birds is stunning. If God is in the details, then this new bird book is inspired. Sibley's illustrations are a labor of love born out of a lifetime of acute observation and passion. His attention to subtleties could only have been noted by watching each species of bird in the field over time. It is this kind of aesthetic and deep patience that makes each page a visual delight. Call the Sibley Guide an ecological testament to the majesty of birds in all their variations. I can hardly wait to take this book in hand and go birding with new eyes." —Terry Tempest Williams

"This wonderful book is comprehensive—erudite—in fact, magnificent, a powerful book that will start a new generation of bird books and birding. It provides triple the educational content over any predecessor. The treatments are innovative and superb." —Frank Gill, the Director of Science at National Audubon Society
