About this book

From the renowned naturalist Stephen Moss, bestselling author of The Robin, The Wren and The Swan comes a new instalment in his beloved bird biography series.

Owls are among the most mysterious birds in the world.

Their hauntingly beautiful calls at dusk and nocturnal habits have long captured our collective imaginations - inspiring more superstitions, folktales and myths around the world than any other group of bird. The 'magnificent seven' most famous species of owl – the tawny, little, barn, long-eared, short-eared, snowy and eagle owl – can all be found in the UK and beyond. Each have vast ranges spanning multiple countries and continents where they have lived alongside people for thousands of years.

Discover the secret lives owls live between twilight and dawn, from the moment they first hatch, to their nightly hunts and how they raise the next generation, explore the rich folklore they've inspired around the world and learn how, with a bit of luck, you can catch a glimpse of them yourself.
