By Denny Rogers, an illustrator with a background in forensic artistry and the author of The Illustrated Bald Eagle and The Illustrated Owl: Screech and Snowy. With over 200 meticulous anatomical drawings and highly detailed illustrations in an impressive variety of poses, this invaluable reference will help any bird-carver and artist how to render re-creations of some of nature's most elusive, and popular, aerial predators.

Additional chapters discuss the physiology and habits while extensive color charts with paint references, provided by award-winning artist and bird-carver Lori Corbett, guide artists in finishing their creations.
