Celebrated natural history writer and wildlife photographer Wayne Lynch reveals the secrets of the elusive species with anecdotes, accessible science, and photographs. Unlike most published owl photos, the majority of these were taken in the wild - a product of the author-photographer's knowledge and patience. These photos are complimented by facts about anatomy, habitat, diet, and family life. For each of nineteen species inhabiting Canada and the United States, he provides a range map and a discussion of its distribution, population size, and status. Lynch debunks myths about owls' "supernatural" powers of sight and hearing, discusses courtship rituals, and offers personal tips for finding owls in the wild.
