About this book

Language: German

Having trouble separating your scops from your screech owls, Tengmalm's from Tawny Owl or Collared and Spotted Owlets? Then this is the book for you. Owls of the World: A Photographic Guide is the ultimate photographic resource dedicated to the identification of these charismatic, largely nocturnal birds of prey. Owls of the World: A Photographic Guide contains lavish and spectacular photography from dozens of the world's finest natural history photographers, covering all of the world's 250 species of owls; particular attention is given to subspecific differences, sexing and ageing. The photos are accompanied by concise text on the identification, habitat, food, distribution and voice of these birds, along with accurate range maps. The definitive work on owl identification, no birder's bookshelf should be without it!
