About this title


Illustrates 148 different species of owls from around the world, and discusses hunting techniques, courtship rituals, nesting habits, territorial calls, and geographic distribution

From Library Journal:

Owls are an unusually homogenous order of birds; almost anyone can recognize an owl by sight or sound (though correct identification of the species can challenge even skilled birders). Worldwide in range (except Antarctica), owls are mostly forest birds, and deforestation threatens many species besides the well-publicized spotted owl. All 151 living species are described in Hume's well-written and not overly technical text and depicted in Boyer's fine (often, in fact, outstanding) paintings. There is little new information here that is not found in two other recent popular works on owls: Owls of the World , edited by J.A. Burton (Tanager, 1984, o.p., but a new edition is due in 1992) and John Sparks's Owls (Facts on File, 1989). Paul Johnsgard's North American Owls ( LJ 12/88) is the basic reference for the United States and Canada. An optional purchase.
