Instead of grouping the birds by type—owls with owls, hawks with hawks—the book has chapters arranged by the habitat type and region where each bird spends the breeding season. Whether you’re enjoying these pages from the comfort of your own armchair or taking a trip to the field you can see which birds to look for in that area—Hawks soar over grasslands next to Prairie Falcons while Cooper’s Hawks share mature forests with Owls. While the 430 stunning color photographs are enough to set this book apart on their own, Davis’s informative and entertaining text completes the picture.
