A complete guide to identifying the world’s owls.

Photographers spend hours waiting to capture them and birders seek them out with determination, but owls have been tough to identify–until now.

Owls of the World is the ultimate resource dedicated to the identification of these charismatic birds of prey. Dozens of the world’s finest photographers have contributed 750 spectacular photographs covering all of the world’s 249 species of owls.

The photos are accompanied by detailed text describing:

Identification notes Habitat Population status Voice Food Distribution Accurate range maps Similar species.

Owls are shown as adults from a perspective that clearly shows markings which assist in identification. Photographs of similar-looking species are included where identification is particularly difficult.

For photographers, birders, naturalists, researchers and any fan of these birds, Owls of the World is the definitive work on species identification. It is also a comprehensive encyclopedia for reference and leisure reading. No bookshelf should be without it.

Encyclopedia This is a very complete encyclopedia of owls. There are photos on virtually every page, with many pages having 2,3 or 4 photos. Information is very complete with the first 80 pages general owl information and the rest of the book listing each different species (420 pages). It weighs 3 1/2 lbs and is approximately 9 1/2 inches by 7 inches. This book is facts and more facts, seems to cover everything.
