The Golden Eagle

Jeff Watson

2nd Edition. The most comprehensive monograph on the Golden Eagle for over forty years covers all aspects of this spectacular and popular species' biology and ecology. The author has worked on eagles in Scotland for more than 15 years and these studies provide the foundation for a treatment which also includes the most up-to-date information from work in North America, continental Europe and elsewhere. This global view allows fascinating insights into the species' relationships with a variety of different habitats and leads to many new and important conclusions regarding its ecology.

This highly readable and authoritative account is destined to become the standard reference on the species, both in Scotland and elsewhere in the world. The text is enriched with many superb pictures of this majestic bird and additional wash landscapes capture the very special atmosphere of Scotland's Golden Eagle country.
