    Default identification of raptors in hand


    I know maybe this is not the right place to ask this but someone here also could help me....
    Does anyone have such a thing as a pdf guide for ID birds of prey in hand? (for the european raptors) I am interested in the most important ID keys which can allow you to separate different raptors at different age levels starting from the nestlings up to the adult age.

    Thank you,

    for ringers purpose, birding ...or falconers? I hope the first two...
    however such a guide its still missing in Europe, you mya find something in a book by Master forsman several years ag? but only in Finnish, Swedish and Dutch I think...also something in baker book, but mostly wrong info there...
    i was thinking since long time to may produce such a guide but my bird artist at the moment its too busy and also we need a good editor for that


    PS. however, you'll find all the good and needed info in Forsman 1999 and KMOlsen 2007 in danish....
