Owls is the most comprehensive book ever published on the group. It is not merely an identification guide, although it does this job handsomely; it is also an invaluable source of information on the ecology and biology of owls, in particular for some of the lesser known species. Where gaps in knowledge still exist, these are highlighted, but this book will become the major reference work on owls for many years to come.
Price: $80.00 AU
