Winner of the 2020 Skipping Stones Honor Award for Nature and Ecology Books

Bird enthusiasts of all ages will welcome this fun approach to learning about the raptors of North America. Educators, children, and beginning birders will find creative ways to learn about the birds and their distinguishing characteristics with the activities and coloring exercises in this book, which features sections on vultures, osprey, kites, harriers, eagles, hawks, owls, and falcons.

Anne Price provides extensive facts and descriptions on each species. The short essays describe how birds descended from dinosaurs, how the art of falconry began, how to distinguish a raptor from other birds, and how each species is scientifically classified. The Raptors of North America provides a creative and educational overview of the majestic birds found throughout North America and encourages us to continue exploring the birds we find in our own backyards and beyond.

A unique book aimed at introducing young and beginning birders to the world of raptors. . . . Creative for certain! Helpful, too.'--Jim Williams, Wingnut blog, Minneapolis Star Tribune
A very cool new book.'--Doc Kirby, On The Bookshelf
Bird enthusiasts of all ages will find this book full of educational fun.'--Skipping Stones
Beautiful, educational coloring book.'--Katie L. Burke, American Scientist
All the essays were well-written and provided lots of easy-to-understand information, which allows the reader to identify many different types of raptors. I also really enjoyed the further reading at the back of the book about the kestrel box. The instructions were clear-cut, and the activity was easy and fun to do.'--Hannah, age thirteen, Kids' BookBuzz
