This comprehensive work covering all the owls of North America, including Mexico and the Caribbean, is the newest addition to the trusted Peterson Reference Guide series. Owls are perhaps the most intriguing of all birds -- instantly recognizable and endlessly fascinating. Whether viewed as symbols of wisdom or bad omens, these unusual birds have had a hold on human imagination for millennia. Heard more often than seen, many owls are best identified by vocalizations; this is the only owl guide to include access to a collection of recordings. It is also the only North American owl book to include the Caribbean, covering 39 species of owls, including many little-known tropical species. With detailed information about identification, calls, habitat, nesting, and behavior, this Reference Guide has the most up-to-date information about natural history, biology, ecology, migration, and conservation status. It is heavily illustrated with hundreds of color photos, and includes the most accurate color range maps ever presented, showing breeding, wintering, and migration routes. This is a definitive work, useful for serious birders and ornithologists but accessible for the non-expert.

Vielleicht lernt man solche Jungen ja nur zu später Stunde kennen. Im Nachtbus, wenn man die letzte Bahn verpasst hat und nur hoffen kann, dass Mom auch noch nicht zu Hause ist. Wenn ganz andere Leute unterwegs sind als sonst. Zum Beispiel dieser Typ mit den schwarzen Klamotten, der aussieht, als wolle er den nächsten Kiosk ausrauben. Doch Bex stellt fest: Jack ist kein Kioskräuber. Er ist der Graffitikünstler, der seit Wochen San Franciscos Bauwerke mit riesigen goldenen Buchstaben verziert. Aber das hält nicht jeder für Kunst; genauso wie nicht jeder Bex‘ anatomische Studien schön findet. Bei Tag und bei Nacht, auf den Dächern der Stadt und in den Tunneln der U-Bahn wächst ihr Vertrauen zueinander. Und zwischen ihnen erblüht die Liebe.
