About this book

Language: German

The standard work – completely revised and updated. Owls are not only fascinating birds, they impress us with their extraordinary adaptations as "hunters of the night". This comprehensive book covers all 13 owl species occurring in Europe. The book is a identification guide, reference book and a mtodern compendium, all in one, and shows the diversity of these extraordinary animals. Accurate detail drawings of typical positions, behavioral processes and facial expressions are given. Over 300 beautiful photographs show feather coats, color phases or aerial photographs. Updated distribution maps and recent population assessments for Europe, with a focus on Central Europe are included as well. From behaviour, calls, breeding biology and development to determining population trends and interpreting their own observations, and from life strategies, hunting techniques, prey selection and habitat requirements to causes of endangerment and directions for species and habitat conservation, all topics are covered. A completely revised and updated standard reference for all owl friends, bird watchers, whether students or professionals. Recommended by NABU.
