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 Allen Sibley, Sibley Field 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.
