IL Birds of Prey -- Soaring High in the Sky

Soaring High in the Sky

Most people learn to identify birds by their size, color, song and habitat they are found in. Since many raptors are seen high in the sky, some people learn to identify them by their silhouette or outline. Take this quick reference guide with you on your next trip outside and watch the sky for raptors. Can you become an expert birder and learn to identify raptors by their silhouettes?
