"What a glorious book! Paul Bannick's photographs reveal the startling beauty and complex survival strategies of the owl and the woodpecker, North America's most charismatic--and crucial--cavity-nesting birds. These are images to savor again and again." --Bruce Barcott
"I find it hard to pull my eyes away from the absolutely stunning photography...

But if you are a fanatic about either or both families [of bird], this is definitely a book that you will want to add to your library." --Picas Blog
"The Owl and the Woodpecker pretty much blew me away with the jaw dropping, envy-inducing quality of the photos... [This is] as good as it gets with bird photography, razor sharp and with great detail, great composition, and telling a great story."See all Editorial Reviews
