Providence Raptors: Documenting The Lives of Urban Birds of Prey
IT’S A BIRD-EAT-BIRD WORLD. Follow wildlife photographer Peter Green as he documents the Peregrine Falcons, Red-tailed Hawks, American Kestrels, and other raptor species that live and thrive in downtown Providence, Rhode Island. This book is a collection of photographs and stories that reveal how stealthy birds of prey live in the city, and provides tips you can follow to help urban raptors survive. 110 pages, 200 photographs, 8" x 8.5" soft cover.
The Barred Owl hunting rodents downtown did not escape from a zoo. Peregrine Falcons were not dispatched by the government to reduce the pigeon population, and the Bald Eagles soaring over the skyline are not lost while migrating to Alaska. Wild predatory raptors have adapted to urban environments and are perfectly at home on structures of brick and steel.
