    Informative, colorful, and fun to read!

    This latest book by Dave Benson is great. At first glance I was stunned by the incredible photos. Mr. Benson has written dozens of short notes (sidebar essays) which explain much about these fascinating creatures. He includes details about each species--range, habitat, behavior, identification, diet--and he shares owl encounters from his life as a naturalist. This book is large in content, but small enough to be a companion on adventures (or in your armchair).

    Great Birding info

    The first thing that I noted about the book was the outstanding photography. This, with the skillful descriptions created by the writer, makes it a valuable birding tool for a guy that knows these birds as 'some kind of an Owl'

    Great book for everyone

    When I read this I realized whether you were a big time birder or a beginner like me, it was a book you could enjoy. There are many facts but they are made to sound real by Mr. Benson's actual adventures. This would be a great book to leave in your car to be ready to identify all the Owls of the North.
