Hawks from Every Angle - How to Identify Raptors in Flight

By Jerry Liguori; Foreword by David A. Sibley

Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press. Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket. 2005. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 0691118248 . HARDCOVER (not paperback). Princeton University 2005, 1st printing. Ex-library book, but still in very good condition - brodart protective sleeve and usual ex-lib type of markings. Pages are all intact and clean other than light soiling to outer edge of pages and last index page. Partial paper split at spine inside front cover, but no loose pages. Pages otherwise unmarked, light age tanning to some page edges. Dustjacket itself is excellent, with no tears, however brodart sleeve has some scuffing and light scratches. This could be removed if desired. Profusely illustrated, mostly in colour. ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; Identifying hawks in flight is a tricky business. Across North America, tens of thousands of people gather every spring and fall at more than one thousand known hawk migration sites--from New Jersey's Cape May to California's Golden Gate. Yet, as many discover, a standard field guide, with its emphasis on plumage, is often of little help in identifying those raptors soaring, gliding, or flapping far, far away. Hawks from Every Angle takes hawk identification to new heights. It offers a fresh approach that literally looks at the birds from every angle, compares and contrasts deceptively similar species, and provides the pictures (and words) needed for identification in the field. Jerry Liguori pinpoints innovative, field-tested identification traits for each species from the various angles that they are seen. Featuring 339 striking color photos on 68 color plates and 32 black & white photos, Hawks from Every Angle is unique in presenting a host of meticulously crafted pictures for each of the 19 species it covers in detail--the species most common to migration sites throughout the United States and Canada. All aspects of raptor identification are discussed, including plumage, shape, and flight style traits. For all birders who follow hawk migration and have found themselves wondering if the raptor in the sky matches the one in the guide, Hawks from Every Angle--distilling an expert's years of experience for the first time into a comprehensive array of truly useful photos and other pointers for each species--is quite simply a must.

The Snake Almanac - A Fully Illustrated Natural History of Snakes Worldwide

By Ricciuti, Edward R.

The Lyons Press. Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket. 2001. First Edition. Hardcover. 1585741787 . This is an ex-library book, but still in very nice condition - laminated cover and usual ex-lib type of markings. Pages are clean and intact. Cover has light scuffing, slight loosening to laminate at some edges as well as a small peel in the laminate on rear. Illustrated in b/w & colour. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 228 pages; Perhaps no creature has been as feared, mythologized, or misunderstood as the snake. The Snake Almanac reveals that the truths about these reptiles are as fascinating as the fictions. There are more than 2,000 species of snakes, and The Snake Almanac gives up close looks at some of the most beautiful, bizarre, and deadly - such as the gliding snake, which can "fly" from trees with the help of skin flaps along its sides, or the hognose snake, which plays dead when threatened, or the powerfully venomous black mamba. Beginning with the snake's evolution, Edward R. Ricciuti goes on to cover the anatomy of snakes and how they move, hunt, eat, breed, and perceive the world around them. He gives a global survey of snakebites - why, when, and where they occur, and the fallacies about treating bites - and examines humankind's attitudes toward snakes, from reviling them as the devil incarnate to revering them as gods. Full of lush illustrations, fact-filled tables and sidebars, and entertaining anecdotes from Ricciuti's experiences as a snake owner and observer, The Snake Almanac is a must-have for anyone interested in nature's legless wonders. (81/4 X 101/4, 228 pages, color photos, b&w photos, illustrations, tables) (710,0811) .
