KNOW YOUR SOUTHERN AFRICAN BIRDS OF PREY
T
he Korck Publishing Wall Poster “Newman’s Birds of Prey – Southern Africa (Fully Revised)”  

  • This wall poster shows 68 species of Southern African Birds of Prey illustrated by Kenneth Newman. While this group of birds is majestic and compelling, all is not well with them.

  • Raptors or birds of prey are predominantly birds which hunt and kill for food. Some raptor species both hunt and feed on carrion, while some species are largely or exclusively carrion feeders. Man’s long fascination with this important group of birds stems partly  from the sheer size, power, speed and amazing aerobatic skills possessed by some of these birds, and partly from appreciation of the high level to which raptors are developed to enable them to survive in their environment.

  • Thanks to Man’s careless intervention in their environment, several raptor species are in danger of losing the battle to survive. Raptors are particularly vulnerable to changes in their environment and have suffered greatly in southern Africa through  the loss of suitable hunting and breeding habitats. The effects of droughts, and over-grazing, depletion of suitable food sources, poisoning, lethal man-made obstructions (eg power lines) and increased competition for existing food sources (eg. through the proliferation of the pied crow) all have contributed to an alarming decrease in numbers among our raptor species.

  • Illustrated on this poster aare all l68 birds of prey.  Among the raptor families represented on this poster are:  buzzard, eagle, snake eagle, falcon, goshawk, harrier, marsh harrier, hawk, hobby, kestrel, kite, sparrowhawk & vulture.

  • Easy co-ordinates and an alphabetical species list allow you to quickly locate the bird you are looking for on the poster. Bird names are listed in English, Afrikaans, German & Latin.
