This long-awaited and important volume comprises the most detailed, comprehensive, and prolonged single study of an eagle species ever undertaken. Thousands of hours of observation in the field during a 21-year period and more than 12,000 written records by a team of voluntary birdwatchers, have gone into the investigation of the behavior and breeding of some 60 pairs of Black Eagles in their natural environment-the Matobo Hills of Zimbabwe.
Exquisite paintings by renowned bird artist Graeme Arnott, and a series of behavioral sketches by eagle-student Robert Davies, add an extra dimension to an appreciation of the Black Eagle. Their inclusion, together with a selection of color photographs,both from the authors unique and extensive collection and by photographers of note, makes this a volume to be treasured by collectors of Africana as well as by all birds of prey enthusiasts.
