Predators on the Prowl
The barn owl may look cute, but it's a killer! In order to survive, this predator silently glides through the night to pounce on unsuspecting prey. In this book, readers meet many other predatory birds, including the peregrine falcon, bald eagle, and red kite. Stunning photographs of these birds in action accompany accessible text and facts about each bird's habitat, food, and weapons. The main text supports science curricula by highlighting predator-prey relationships as well as points about conservation and body part adaptation to certain kinds of hunting.
