There are nineteen species of owls that make North America their home and this revised paperback edition of Owls: The Silent Fliers is a celebration of their continued survival. In R. D. Lawrence's engaging text - complemented with dozens of stunning full-colour images by some of North America's best wildlife photographers - the intimate details of the owl's lifestyle, habitat, anatomy and behaviour is explored. Each chapter of the book focuses on a different species of owl, from the majestic great horned owl and the rare ferruginous pygmy owl to the common barn owl. These individual portraits include vital statistics for each bird, along with range maps, information on nesting and breeding patterns and detailed descriptions of their relationships with both their families and their environment. Owls examines the history, the myths and the legends surrounding these noble birds and considers the steps being taken to conserve them. Owls is a fascinating story of one observer's love affair with these remarkable creatures. (1997)
