Inside our book

“Anyone wanting to educate themselves or someone else about North America’s raptors needs this book in their tool chest!”

“With this book, REF again leads the way to entice children into the marvelous world of eagles, hawks, falcons, and owls…WOW!”

“Once again, REF distinguishes itself as an educational organization that has virtually no peers when it comes to introducing the public to raptors.  This wonderful book is a must for any bird lover!”

In print longer than any raptor book published and with more copies sold!

“As a person who has studied predatory birds in many lands over the course of 60+ years, I see this beautiful collection of Donald Malick’s art together with Anne Price’s concise life history for each species as a great introduction to raptors.  To me, the outline drawings, although great coloring fun for a small child, are also an important learning tool for teens and adults, especially in memorizing the color schemes of each species.  For this purpose, and for general relaxation from the busy-ness of the world, I urge that colored pencils be used to more precisely match the paintings.  Above all else, this book helps you enjoy our amazing wildlife heritage. ”

After 32 years in print we are very pleased to release this brand new edition of our introduction to all of America’s raptors. Thanks to the University of New Mexico Press for re-creating the original into another masterpiece for the 21st century! Written by REF President & Curator,  Anne Price, and illustrated by Don Malick, this book is a must for anyone interested in learning the basics about raptors.  Great for children and anyone cultivating an interest in eagles, hawk, falcons, owls, and vultures! If you are interested in raptors in any way, this book belongs in your resource library. There has never been a better way to acquaint yourself with all of America’s raptors.  Artist Nancy Malick’s description upon seeing an advanced copy, “it’s a coffee-table coloring book.” summarizes the book’s quality.
