About this book

In Owl, award-winning photographer Paul Bannick uses his intimate yet dramatic images to track four different nesting owl species – Northern Pygmy, Burrowing, Great Gray, and Snowy – throughout the course of one year and in four distinct habitats. Readers follow along at the nest as each stage in an owl's life is chronicled: courtship, mating, and nesting in spring; fledging and feeding of young in summer; dispersal and learning independence in fall; and, finally, winter's migration. Unusual irruptions and the everyday struggle to survive are also covered.

In addition to the four featured owls, all 19 species of North American owls are generously depicted throughout Owl; Bannick's startling images reflect their shared behaviors as well as some surprising exceptions and adaptations. More than just a backdrop, the four featured owl habitats – forest, grassland and steppe, boreal, and Arctic – reveal wildly rich stories of their own.
