Raptor Books by Kate Davis

"This charming, well-written book tells us lots about our six North American falcons. Kate used her experience as a falconer, researcher, rehabilitator, educator, conservationist, and artist to give us an insight into how falcons live and their relationships with humankind. The emphasis is on the Peregrine Falcon, unquestionably the most charismatic of the falcons, yet all are covered well in detailed species accounts. The book is a nice blend of personal experience, rendering of the literature, and behavioral observations, with sidebars on some interesting falcon projects, and more. And the vast majority of the photos are just stunning! A must for anyone who loves falcons and photos of them and wants to learn more about them." (Bill Clark, Peterson Field Guide to Hawks)

Published in 2008, over 200 photographs, 13 illustrations and diagrams by Kate, glossary, references, index and species account of 6 falcon species.
