Format: Hardcover
If only one definitive, technical guide to owls of the world were to be purchased for a serious reference collection, this should be considered: its color drawings identifying owls of the world are detailed and well done, while the small maps and descriptions of natural history and habitat are specific and in-depth coverages. Owls is an important, basic, and comprehensive reference.

Format: Hardcover
A stunning and fresh look at the Owls of the world. Each of the 212 species recognised by the Authors is described in detail, including Habits, vocalisations, distribution and current status. 64 colour plates add visual credence to the descriptions. This is all preceded by a general overview of Owl anatomy, behaviour, vocalisations, and breeding and nesting habits. Evidence is also presented to support the Authors' views on taxonomy. If you only ever buy one book about Owls, make it this one!
