    1. This book combines the personal experiences of the author with detailed information about the owls that live in the United States and Canada. The background information given in this book can be applied to more than one species of owls, and in some cases, it could be applied more generally to birds of prey. There are comparisons between humans and owls to give the reader a better image of what the author is describing. When there is a piece of general information given, the author gives examples [...]

    2. I checked this one out from the library because of its beautiful photos. The photos are enough to make it stay on your coffee table, but the text was even better. I quickly found out I knew nothing about owls, and was extremely pleased with the in-depth treatment. Kudos to Wayne Lynch on this one. Simply a wonderful book.
