Editorial Reviews

George Hampton
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.
