Dr. Craig Farquhar of Texas State University will be our guest speaker on Wednesday, November 8 in the evening at Alamo Colleges District, 2222 N. Alamo Street. Dr. Farquhar will discuss his new book, Raptors of Texas. A signed copy of the book will be awarded as a raffle prize. Bring your copy of the book for signing.

From Texas A&M University Press about the book: “Diurnal raptors—birds of prey that hunt during the day—include easily recognizable birds like eagles, hawks, or falcons. They may be seen perched on highway signs, electrical poles, or soaring overheard in urban and rural spaces across North America. Here, avian ecology and raptor experts C. Craig Farquhar and Clint W. Boal present the first comprehensive volume on these birds of prey in Texas. Given the state’s size, location, and biodiversity, it is not surprising that Texas leads other states in the documented number of raptor species.

The introductory chapters of Raptors of Texas provide information on raptor ecology, evolution, behavior, morphology, and the unique conservation challenges raptors face in Texas and elsewhere. Detailed species descriptions of Texas’ regularly occurring diurnal raptors come next, illustrated with life-like graphite drawings and accompanied by unique, up-to-date range maps. Additionally, shorter entries for rare raptors sighted in the state are provided.
