About this book

Explore the twilight world of owls that you can hear in your garden, the park or woods with this lyrical investigation into their sounds. Listen to previously unpublished digital stereo recordings of the owls of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, illustrated with annotated sonograms. Enjoy paintings and photographs, often of the individuals recorded. Learn how research into evolution, behaviour and sounds invite us to recognise a dozen new owl species.

Share the thrill of closing in on a huge fish owl found only a handful of times before, the rarest owl in our region. Travel to rugged desert mountains, where the authors chanced upon a previously undiscovered owl, the first new Arabian bird species for nearly 80 years. Learn to listen like an owl and maybe you could find the next one.

Media reviews

"[...] This is a sumptuous and eye-opening read, as well as an authoritative reference for years to come. The joy of discovery and the pains of detailed hard work are profuse throughout, and the book remains an engrossing read due to Robb's pleasingly conversational style. It will also give adventurous birders plenty of scope to plan trips to see – and hear – these mysterious and hard-won species for themselves."
