About this Item

216 Pages Indexed. Four lines of inked owner's name and date inside front cover. No other marks or stamps. Minor cover edge and corner wear. Illustrated throughout with color photographs, tables, drawings and maps. Owls are one of the groups of birds most subject to prejudice, both malevolent and to a less extent benevolent, and to misunderstanding. All over the world those concerned with shooting pheasant or hunting other game birds tend to view owls with much the same suspicion and as they do hawks and falcons: with curiously conflicting emotions of love or hate. This book aims to clear people's minds of such prejudices, and will go some way towards helping them to understand the place of nocturnal birds of prey in the ecology of a habitat.
