The team that collaborated on Great Northern Diver: The Loon (1990) returns with an even more detailed and better-balanced portrait. The straightforward text describes the owl's characteristics and habits, focusing on hunting and raising young; fascinating facts include their soundless flight (a result of soft-edged feathers) and, despite the ``wise'' clich‚, their relative lack of intelligence: not as smart as crows, or even geese. Unusually beautiful, finely detailed illustrations; handsome and informative. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 5-10) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
