They are among the most impressive members of the bird family - possessed
of keen eyesight, powerful beaks, strong, grasping talons, and an appetite for meat.
They are the raptors, or birds of prey, among them hawks, eagles, owls and other species.

In this treasury of ready-to-color illustrations, noted wildlife artist
John Green has rendered 42 birds of prey from around the world (concentrating on species common in North America)
- both well known and lesser known.

~ Detailed, accurate illustrations depict the Bald Eagle, Common Black-Hawk, Great Horned Owl, Andean Condor, Osprey, Crested Caracara, Turkey Vulture, Peregrine Falcon (on a dramatic double-page spread) and many more.

~Carefully researched captions provide invaluable information on each bird,
and all 42 are pictured in color on the book's covers.
Bird and nature lovers of all ages will want this fun to color informative guide
to birds of prey; artists and designers will find it an inexpensive source of marvelous copyright free bird illustrations.

This says ~coloring book~; but it's not
really for kids, it's more an adult coloring book, although children will enjoy
it as well.
The black outlines would be great to trace for bird painting. The pages of outlines are the size of the book.
Never colored in, near mint condition
a touch dinged around the edges.

There is a corner fold onn the front cover. It does not interfere with any color pictures of birds.
