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.

Ospreys live on every continent but Antarctica and, as Doug Wechsler writes, "They make their living eating fish." Packed with facts and action photography, this book will both educate the reader and fully engage them in the life of this bird of prey.
