Empire of the Eagle: An Illustrated Natural History

Yale Univ. Nov. 2018. 288p. photos. index. ISBN 9780300232899. $40. REF
Wildlife expert Unwin and writer and photographer Tipling (coauthors, The Enigma of the Owl) cover the 68 currently recognized eagle species worldwide, with large photos and accessible text. Organized into five habitats, these eagles soar over mountains, nest high in rain forest trees, and chase a red fox from a carcass in the snow. Readers will learn about the appearance, size, distribution, and conservation status of each species, along with deeper background information, notes on locations, breeding patterns, and more.
VERDICT The stunning photographs and readable text make this a solid choice for all libraries, especially in areas with bird-watchers or significant eagle populations.
