I was looking for a book to tell me about the dozens and dozens of turkey vultures that swoop and soar through my neighborhood skies and roost all together in a congenial-seeming large group every night. This book is much more than that; it's an amazingly thorough and comprehensive account of all raptors, which the author writes is the blanket term for hawks, falcons, eagles, vultures and owls.

I have loved several of Weidensaul's books, but not this one. It isn't a bad introduction to raptors, but the inclusion of many pictures and large tables leaves little room for text. So, most topics are covered in a cursory manner. Although most of the text focuses on North America many of the tables include Europe, and there are some references to raptors in other parts of the world. The broad geographic span further dilutes the information.
