Dr. Doug Wechsler, a wildlife biologist, ornithologist, and photographer, has written this wonderful series on birds of prey. Each book includes an introduction to a bird: its size, color, and habitat; its hunting, eating, and migration habits; how and where it builds its nest, and its survival strategies. Clear, accessible, and often humorous text is combined with spectacular photography from VIREO, the Visual Resources for Ornithology, and The Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, to create books that will delight and inform your students.
The bald eagle was driven to the brink of extinction in the 1960s by widespread use of the chemical DDT. This compelling book tells the story of these amazing predators, accompanied by stunning photographs of the bird that is the symbol of our country.
