Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In two parts, "An Introduction to Owling" and "The Owls of North America," the Suttons present the hobby of owl watching and owl-spotting prospects throughout North America. Part 1 affords the enthusiast's perspective on spotting, recording, and enjoying the moment of discovery. Sighting an owl—a nocturnal creature, after all—requires patience, local knowledge, and the willingness to make squeaking and sucking noises. Part 2 with its species pictures, tables of names and physical dimensions, and range maps resembles a field guide. Little essays on the various owl species each cover a particular bird's peculiarities and advise how to successfully discover it. An excellent starter book for a fascinating hobby." Booklist, ALA
