Owls of the World
Hardcover - English

Experience enigmatic owls across the globe through exquisite photos and intriguing scientific facts.

In this beautiful book, James Duncan explores the behavior and lifecycle of the elusive owl, including courtship, nesting, and the unique adaptations for nocturnal life and predation that make this group of birds such stealthy hunters. Showcasing stunning full-color photographs from around the world, this book touches on a diverse array of the world's 200+ owl species, from the beautiful and highly recognizable Snowy Owl, which thrives on the freezing Arctic tundra, to the secretive and rare Forest Owlet, which haunts the mangroves of India.

Duncan, who has banded more than 2,500 owls during the course of his research, explains why owls' particular physiology--from their ability to rotate their heads 270 degrees in either direction to their soft feathers, camouflaged plumage, and unique vocalizations--have helped them thrive. A chapter covers each owl family, including huge Eagle-Owls, diminutive Pygmy Owls, familiar Barn Owls, and unusual fishing and burrowing owls. Closing chapters look at relationships between owls and humans by exploring such issues as banding and falconry, threats to owls from human factors, and attendant conservation issues.

An entertaining compendium of owls that depicts the birds' secret lives with both accuracy and grace, Owls of the World will appeal to birdwatchers, nature lovers, and dedicated owl aficionados alike.
