Eagles have fascinated humans for millennia. For some, the glimpse of a distant eagle instantly becomes a treasured lifelong memory. Others may never encounter a wild eagle in their lifetime. This book was written by people who have dedicated years to the study of eagles, to provide an insider's view for all readers, but especially those who have never been up close and personal with these magnificent yet often misunderstood creatures. In their stories, twenty-nine leading eagle researchers share their remarkable field experiences, providing personal narratives that don't feature in their scientific publications. They tell of their fear at being stalked by grizzly bears, their surprise at being followed by the secret police, their embarrassment when accidentally firing mortar rockets over a school gymnasium, and their sense of awe at tracking eagles via satellite. The reader experiences the cultural shock of being guest of honor at a circumcision ceremony, the absurdity of sharing an aquatic car with the Khmer Rouge, and the sense of foreboding at being press-ganged into a frenzied tribal death march through the jungle. The Eagle Watchers covers twenty-four species on six continents, from well known (bald eagle; golden eagle), to obscure (black-and-chestnut eagle; New Guinea harpy eagle), and from common (African fish eagle) to critically endangered (Philippine eagle; Madagascar fish eagle). The diverse experiences vividly described in this book reveal the passion, dedication, and sense of adventure shared by those who study these majestic birds and strive for their conservation. Featuring stunning color photographs of the eagles, information on raptor conservation, a global list of all eagle species with ranges and conservation status, and a color map of the sites visited in the book, The Eagle Watchers will appeal to birders, conservationists, and adventure travelers alike. To further support the conservation programs described in this book, all royalties are being donated to two leading nonprofit organizations for raptor conservation training and fieldwork: Hawk Mountain Sanctuary Intern Program and the National Birds of Prey Trust.

I suspect it is during the curse of darkness that great horned owls become a greater bane to ferruginous hawks than even neighboring golden eagles.

A Hawk in the Sun brilliantly shows the passion of a true scientist. The research was of the nesting and other habits of the ferruginous hawk-an extremely shy and difficult-to-study bird that is the largest hawk in North America. The reader will be emotionally involved from the fight between a pair of hawks and a coyote through the author's description of Penelope, the stay-at-home mom, to the poignant death of a hawk chick.

"There is a valley, not far from here that needs you.” The voice painted a picture for Shinaka. “It is a green place, where creatures live in peace and harmony. I want very much for it to remain that way. The valley needs a keeper, one who will protect it and its inhabitants. I want you, Shinaka, to be the keeper and protector of the green valley. But you must vow to do it always and forever." Smiling Fawn asks her grandfather, Brave Wolf, to tell once more her favorite story, “The Hummingbird and the Hawk.” As a tribal elder, Brave Wolf shares with her the stories of their people to teach Smiling Fawn about the history of her family and her tribe. The people of the Armaha tribe have a rich tradition of legends handed down from generation to generation. The legends---filled with mystery, wonder, and adventure---help Smiling Fawn understand the beliefs her people guard and treasure. In these stories, she hears of Ahote, the Restless One, and of Ama and Dyami, and the struggles of the little humming bird Nuluk to find a new home for his flock. The important lessons revealed by the stories influence and shape Smiling Fawn's life as she blossoms from a young girl of seven---whom her grandfather calls "little one"---to a young woman of sixteen and learns what it means to be a respected member of the Armaha.

Was Caesar like the eagle because of his aquiline (from aquila, for “eagle” in Latin) nose, or does the eagle seem imperial because of his Caesar-like beak? Does the sharp vision of a “hawk-eyed” observer have any basis in nature? And what the heck is “kettling” to a bird-watcher, or, for that matter, a bird? Raptors have captured the imagination from time immemorial and have an especially rich history in Minnesota. The ancient peoples whose pictographs adorn the rock faces of Lake Superior's North Shore may well have witnessed the first hawk movements along Lake Superior—the same annual migration that today draws as many as twenty thousand people to Duluth's Hawk Ridge. These birds, passing through in astounding numbers, are among the hawks and accipiters, buteos and harriers, eagles and ospreys pictured and profiled in detail in this book. Written by one of Minnesota's best-known bird authorities, with images by one of the state's favorite illustrators, Hawk Ridge is as fun as it is informative. It introduces the state's raptors, from the rare visitor to the most familiar hawk, noting each species' signature traits—osprey wings, for instance, are crooked to help them catch fish; vultures urinate on their legs to cool themselves—and their nesting, breeding, and migrating habits. Did you know that Sharp-shinned Hawks banded at Hawk Ridge have been found throughout Central America and even into South America, and also, in midwinter, in Wisconsin? Laura Erickson offers a broad perspective (a bird's-eye view!), making sense of the raptor's role in the larger ornithological scheme. With descriptions of various species—and helpful distinctions between species, families, and orders—the book gives readers a clear idea of which raptors might be seen in Minnesota, when, where, and how often. It also includes a hawk migration primer that explains the movements that bring these birds in such awe-inspiring numbers to places like Hawk Ridge. Filled with curious facts and practical information for expert and amateur bird-watcher alike, the book is at once a guide to the hawks of Minnesota and a beautifully illustrated album of the most regal members of the avian kingdom.

This vintage book contains a comprehensive and practical handbook on falconry, with information on training, care and management, common ailments, equipment and equipping, feeding, and much more. Written in clear, plain language and full of simple instructions and invaluable hints, this timeless volume is highly recommended for the modern falconer, and would make for a great addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: “Choice of Hawk”, “The Perch”, “The Block”, “The Bath”, “Glove, Hood and Jesses”, “Sending a hawk by Rail”, “Treatment on Arrival”, “Hooding”, “Putting on the Jesses”, “Varvels”, “The Leash”, “The Brail”, “Feeding”, “Washed Meat”, “Range”, “Tiring”, “Castings”, “The Lure”, etcetera. Many antiquarian texts such as this, especially those dating back to the 1900s and before, are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on falconry.
