A fieldworker's guide to the Golden eagle, by Dave Walker (Whittles Publishing)
"The Golden Eagle is generally thought to be a well-known and well-documented species although much of the available literature cannot readily be used in the field. Additionally, much-existing information has little supporting evidence and yet is still largely accepted without question which may be detrimental to understand eagle ecology and undermine conservation efforts. This important issue is addressed by the author who queries numerous long-held belief about Golden Eagles. The Fieldworker's Guide examines existing knowledge and promotes a better understanding of the species through improved fieldwork. With 37 years of active, year-round investigative fieldwork experience, the author has vast knowledge enabling him to shed light on these matters."
This book, published by Whittles Publishng, is really interesting because show us how a fascinating bird like the Golden Eagle lives. The author, Dave Walker, had done a complete work and study about this species, analysing every aspect of their life, like habitat, territory, food, breeding and so on. There're some statistical data, that can be always useful.
In the book, there're some pictures of eagles, some very interesting. But there're some sections with related, for instance, to the food:
or the almanack where month after month, describe the salient aspect of life's eagle, like the plumages variation in the immature eagles or the breeding pairs:
These are some colour pictures of the book:
This edition is well done, the cover is soft but is quite resistant and the quality of the paper is good. The characters used for the text is right for reading, and despite there're lots of information the legibility is quite good. Of course it isn't a novel book, so it could be a bit boring in some part, but we have to appreciate the author's work.
So, if you're fascinated by this wonderful bird like me, you can't not buying this book, so I recommend you, mostly when there are online sales!!
