Description

From majestic bald eagles to nocturnal owls, meet the top aerial predators in DK Eyewitness Books: Eagles & Birds of Prey. See how raptors fly and hunt using their incredible speed and vision to take down their prey. Explore these birds' deep history, unique biology, and the different habitats they live in with DK Eyewitness Books: Eagles & Birds of Prey.

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.

Discover all the things both big and small that make raptors unique in DK Eyewitness Books: Eagles & Birds of Prey.

Each revised Eyewitness book retains the stunning artwork and photography from the groundbreaking original series, but the text has been reduced and reworked to speak more clearly to younger readers. Still on every colorful page: vibrant annotated photographs and the integrated text-and-pictures approach that makes Eyewitness a perennial favorite of parents, teachers, and school-age kids.
