Inhaltsangabe: A complete guide to the raptors of the Indian subcontinent. Lavishly illustrated with 24 colour plates and around 600 photos, each species is shown in all usual plumage forms, in flight and at rest. The species accounts cover all aspects of field identification, and also include sections on distribution, behaviour, status and population. The Indian subcontinent comprises the countries of India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and the Maldives. This region encompasses a great diversity of habitat types and a full range of altitudinal variation, and has a correspondingly large avifauna. The diurnal birds of prey are well represented - 70 species of hawk, buzzard, kite, harrier, eagle, vulture, falcon and falconet are found in the region. Anyone birding in the Indian subcontinent will find this book an invaluable aid to identifying and understanding the region's diverse raptor avifauna.

Rezension: 'A true tour de force [this] will be the primary reference work on the region's raptors. I highly recommend it to all ornothologists, birders and conservationists with an interest in raptors and Asian birds.' -- Birding Asia (2007)

'This handsomely produced book... gives one an understanding of
the world raptors live in, a world as exciting as our own. It is replete
with stunning plates by John Schmitt and several photographs by Rishad
himself. But its strongest point, one that will stand the test of time, is
its research into much unexplored territory.' -- Parsiana (April 2007)

'What stands out... is the remarkable depth of research on every
aspect of raptor biology and the breadth of the author's own experience
with and contribution to the study of Indian birds of prey. In addition,
the concise and intuitive style of writing and excellent editing deserve
mention... Highly comprehensive and well-written, with high-quality colour
photographs and illustrations, this is a landmark contribution to Indian
ornithological knowledge, and as an all-encompassing reference on Indian
raptors, will almost certainly never be surpassed. A must for the serious
amateur and field ornithologist.' -- Current Science (April 2007)
