Abstract

Birds of prey in the wild are the stuff of outdoorsmen's dreams. Soaring falcons, defiant golden eagles, and fierce hawks symbolize independence, strength, and grace. We also recognize raptors' utility. They provide free control of rodents and other potential pests, and have great biological value as indicator species. But for all their indicator species. But for all their spiritual, economic, and scientific value, raptors have diminished in number and in range, due in large part to human use of cumulative pesticides like DDT.
