Series: Poyser Monographs
By: Tony Warburton(Author), Robert Byatt(Author), Derek S Bunn(Author)
320 pages, colour photos
With its heart-shaped face, buff back and wings and pure white underparts, the Barn Owl is a distinctive and much-loved bird of the countryside. Widely distributed across the British Isles and indeed the world, this species has suffered a serious decline over the past fifty years as a result of the degradation of formerly prey-rich habitats in the face of intensive agricultural practices. This new and completely revised edition of a classic Poyser monograph brings the Barn Owl story completely up to date. Written by the same authors – who remain the voices of authority on the species – The Barn Owl provides a fascinating record of the ebb and flow of this owl's fortunes, along with the standard Poyser treatment of breeding biology, evolution, distribution, feeding ecology and demographics.
