American Kestrel Pint-Sized Predator

"Incredible photography is the centerpiece of this book and it will immediately grab your attention: alternately awe-inspiring, intimate, humorous, surprising, and familiar. It is like flipping through the pages of the Kestrel family photo album, with text that complements the photographs, telling the full story behind each moment. Kestrels are overflowing with charisma, and Kate Davis and Rob Palmer have managed to capture that elusive charm in this fitting tribute to a remarkable little falcon." --David Sibley, author of Sibley Guides "If "One picture is worth a thousand words," this small book, packed full of superb and exciting images of America's smallest and most colorful falcon by the author/photographer Kate Davis and photographer Rob Palmer, is worth at least 100,000 words! Moreover, the text, written in clear, interesting, and non-technical but authoritative language, complements the photographs in a way sure to stimulate readers to learn more about the life story and habits of the American Kestrel by making their own observations in the field." --Tom Cade, The Peregrine Fund, Boise, Idaho.

Illustrated with Rob Palmer's phenomenal photographs of swift foxes and their Great Plains landscape, this is a book both kids and adults will be happy to read over and over. Because of that, Jacob Swift will both entertain and educate many people about an important place very few are aware of: The Great Plains of North America.

Raptors of the West

Winner of the National Outdoor Book Awards for 2011 for Design and Merit. With their striking looks, keen vision, and hunting prowess, the birds of prey—eagles, hawks, falcons, and owls—have long captured the human imagination. Now Raptors of the West, a collection of some of most remarkable and action-packed raptor photographs ever taken, can inspire your own imagination to take flight. This book, the latest collaboration by award-winning photographers Rob Palmer and Nick Dunlop and author/ photographer Kate Davis, is a glorious photographic ode to the forty-four birds of prey that roam the skies of the American West. Instead of grouping the birds by type—owls with owls, hawks with hawks—the book has chapters arranged by the habitat type and region where each bird spends the breeding season. Whether you’re enjoying these pages from the comfort of your own armchair or taking a trip to the field you can see which birds to look for in that area—Swainson’s Hawks soar over grasslands next to Prairie Falcons while Cooper’s Hawks share mature forests with Flammulated Owls. While the 400-plus stunning color photographs are enough to set this book apart on their own, Davis’s informative and entertaining text completes the picture. Paperback: 224 pages Author: Kate Davis Photographers: Rob Palmer, Nick Dunlop A signed copy of this book is $30.00 plus $5.00 shipping and handling.
