Raptors are notoriously hard to identify, even if seen well. Contrary to expectation, it is actually easier to identify raptors in flight, rather than perched, and it is fortunate that most raptors are usually seen in flight! This is the ultimate flight-identification guide to Western Palearctic raptors. It covers 60+ species, and goes to subspecific level wherever needed. The geographical area covered is Europe, North Africa, the Middle East including the Arabian Peninsula, and east to Central Asia.
This is a photographic guide with stunning images, most of which have been reserved for Flight Identification of Raptors of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East and have never been published before. The thorough text covers every plumage and age in breathtaking detail, and each species are illustrated with a range of photographs covering all the principal plumages.
Please note that this book does not replace, but complements Forsman’s other book, The Raptors of Europe and the Middle East: A Handbook of Field Identification. The latter dealt with identification of birds both perched and in flight, whereas the new guide focuses on in-flight identification only.
