This fascinating wonderful scholarly work of love is chock full of information including sketches pictures and facts like diet habitat wingspan markings calls weight mating habits scat nesting eggs young and family life characteristics tail length beak length distribution hunting methods enemies and defenses and much much more !This great book is just loaded with information including as noted in the title the identification of every owl of North America .My guess is that if the good folks at Petersons made a guide to North American Owls I doubt ir would be as informative this is not a knock at Petersons but rather holding this book by Allan Eckert to a standard set by Petersons.This is undoubtably a work of love by a very well known writer teacher early American historical scholar and seven time Pulitzer nominee Allan Eckert whose works include THE FRONTIERSMAN, A SORROW IN OUR HEART, THE EMPIRE SERIES including GATEWAY TO EMPIRE, TWLIGHT OF EMPIRE, WILDERNESS EMPIRE and many others brilliant books on early American history Native American leaders and fasinating stories of real life figures like Tecumseh, Danial Boone, BlueJacket Chief of the Shawnees and others. In addition Mr.Eckert also wrote a book under the title of "THE WADING BIRDS OF NORTH AMERICA" I hope this review is helpful thanks for taking the time to read it.
This is an extraordinary bird and reading about its nature and habitat is very interesting. And I don't even like birds that much except at Sunday's lunch and Thanksgiving. Originally I bought the book for one of my grand daughters who became overly engaged in Harry Potter and his pet owl. But as I reviewed the book, I found that I became overly engaged on its content. This is what I call a win-win.
