RAPTORS OF SOUTHERN AFRICA
The Korck Publishing Wall Poster “Newman’s Raptors of Southern Africa – (Classic Edition)”
This very popular poster illustrates all 68 species of the majestic birds of prey to be found in Southern Africa.
Raptors hunt and kill for their food and for that purpose all possess strong hooked beaks Some birds of prey feed on animals already killed by carnivores or by accident ie road kill. They perform a very important role in keeping the countryside clean and free of disease. Birds of prey are generally large and powerful and capable of performing amazing aerobatic acts. Several species are in danger of losing the battle to survive due to careless intervention by Man in their environment and have suffered greatly in Southern Africa through loss of suitable hunting and breeding habitats, and through poisoning.
Among the raptor families illustrated on this poster are: buzzard, eagle, snake eagle, falcon, goshawk, harrier, marsh harrier, hawk, hobby, kestrel, kite, sparrowhawk & vulture.
Of the 68 species in Southern Africa one species is possibly extinct, four are vulnerable, eight are in the rare category, and two intermediate, with another ten requiring careful status monitoring.
