There are 19 species of owls in North America and a spectacularly-illustrated chapter is devoted to each in this intriguing natural history narrative. Author Jim Burns takes the reader on a journey of discovering owls during his travels across the United States. His two rules of owling-that owls never appear when and where they are expected, and that owls always appear when and where they are least expected-set the tone for this informative and exciting excursion into the world of owls. The essays are combined with stunning full-color images of these elusive birds, and details on each bird's habitat, range, behavior, breeding, nesting habits, calls, and migration are also included. And as these birds are so often heard and not seen, an audio CD is part of this complete owl package, showcasing the magnificent calls of these beautiful and mysterious birds.
