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.

Media reviews

"[...] Owl: A Year in the Lives of North American Owls is an informative, intimate look at our owls. Paul Bannick has spent many an hour in the field with these birds, and that clearly comes through in both his pictures and his words. This is one of the best – and certainly the best-looking – of the many, many owl books."
