About this book

Owls are a fascinating group of birds because of their adaptation to nocturnal life. We know very little about most species and it is very difficult to identify some taxa correctly. For this reason, voice is critical in identification and heavy emphasis on voice identification is made in this guide. An accompanying Double-CD with voices of many species is also available. Ecology and reproductive behaviour are also given extensive coverage.
