9780122759703: The Black Eagle: Verreaux's Eagle in Southern Africa

The long awaited and important volume comprises the most detailed, comprehensive and prolonged single study of an eagle species ever under-taken. Thousands of hours of observation in the field during a 2l -year period and over 12,000 written records by a team of voluntary bird-watcher, have gone into the investigation of the behaviour 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 Amott, and a series of behavioural sketches by eagle-student Robert Davies, add an extra dimension to an appreciation of the Black Eagle. Their inclusion, together with a selection of colour photographs, both from the author's 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 bird of prey enthusiasts.
