THE BASICS:
hardcover; 15 illustrated color plates and 850 color photographs show the 69 species of non-owl raptors found on the Indian Subcontinent; a 2-19 page chapter on each bird provides information on description, distribution, and various life history aspects; range maps are given for each bird

THE REVIEW:
This book exceeded my expectations. It is certainly on par with the best raptor books in the US or Europe. The chapters offer a depth of information and the photos are abundant with good quality for each of India's 69 (non-Owl) raptors.

Each raptor is assigned its own chapter, ranging from 2 to 19 pages in length. The more common species in the region typically are allotted the longer chapters. The sections on description and field characters make up anywhere from one-third to one-half of the text provided for the bird. This information is very detailed and does a good job at addressing the various plumages of the genders and ages. The author also does a superb job of offering some key ID marks and of comparing the similar species. The remainder of the text covers status, distribution, habitat, behavior, and breeding. This information is top notch and is supported by a bibliography of 49 pages comprising 1,000+ references.

Most birds have 15-20 color photos that offer a good selection of poses and plumages. They are shown both in flight and perched as well as with both dorsal and ventral views. Some of the less common species are shown with only 2-3 photos (e.g., Collared & Pied Falconets, Nicobar Serpent-Eagle) while one, the isolated Nicobar Sparrowhawk, has no photo. This sparrowhawk is shown by only four color illustrations in the plates.

The 15 color plates illustrate all 69 species with 2-28 different drawings from multiple angles while most have 6-10 illustrations. These plates are quality artwork with fine detail and good color reproduction. Each plate holds an average of 20 illustrations, which causes some of the birds to be a slightly small but still be of an acceptable size for examination and study.

The range maps are of a respectable size - 3.5-inches square - and show nice detail. These maps display the entire Indian subcontinent which includes Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and both of the Nicobar and Andaman island groups. The boundaries of the Indian states are also displayed to help with a more detailed geographic reference.

This large, heavy book is an excellent at-home reference. Its size and format do not lend itself to being a field guide. Anyone with an interest in raptors will definitely want to add this quality book to his library. -- (written by Jack at Avian Review with sample pages, August 2008)
