These bird profiles focus strongly on hunting abilities. The opening pages of each title describe a single bird capturing prey, followed by a survey of the qualities and behaviors that make the group such skilled predators. Falcons, for example, examines what they hunt and how their nests, flying abilities, and physical features aid their efforts. Photographs typically show the birds either hunting or eating and include a variety of species within the group. Splashes of deep purples, grays, and other colors decorate the pages, without taking too much attention away from the photographs. Most, but not all images, include species identification in the text or caption. A closing spread provides a slightly more detailed look at a particular species. VERDICT Solid choices to fill gaps or add depth to a popular subject area.
