About this title:

Synopsis:

The superlative identification guide now revised with 19 additional owl species.

Praise for the first edition:
"[An] important book. Recommended for most libraries -- good value and quality for the price."
--Booklist

"A spectacular book."
--Library Journal, Best Reference of 2012

"A valued addition as a reference for bird enthusiasts and libraries."
--Science Books and Film

Owls of the World, second edition, is the ultimate photographic resource dedicated to the identification of these charismatic birds of prey. The new edition is packed with spectacular photography of 268 species of owls from all over the world -- 19 more species than the original book. Many of the photos are of highly elusive species that are very rarely caught on camera.

The photos are accompanied by detailed text describing:

  • Identification notes
  • Habitat
  • Population status
  • Voice
  • Food
  • Distribution
  • Accurate range maps
  • Similar species.

The photographic coverage includes plumages and subspecies which promotes differentiation between species, making this the definitive work on owl identification. Similar-looking ("confusion") species are included and owls are shown as adults from a perspective that clearly shows markings that assist in identification.

For birders, naturalists, photographers, researchers and any fan of these birds, Owls of the World is the definitive work on species identification as well as a comprehensive encyclopedia for reference and reading.

About the Author:

Heimo Mikkola is the world's best-known owl expert. Originally from Finland, he has traveled to 128 countries in the course of his 40-year research career in search of nocturnal birds.
