Owls brings together full descriptions and distribution maps for all 225 owl species in the world, illustrated with stunning colour photographs.

The charm and mystique of owls resonates through human history. From ancient myth and superstition to the most popular modern children's stories, these beautiful, deadly birds are harbingers of good and bad news, icons of fear and wisdom, and powerful sidekicks of magic-makers. Yet uncovering the reality of their lives is a tremendous challenge, as most are nocturnal and many extremely secretive. New species are still being discovered, as are new insights into the habits of even the most familiar species.

About the Author

Marianne Taylor (California, USA) is a freelance writer, illustrator, photographer and editor. She worked for seven years in natural history publishing, and her particular interest in owls was sparked by a period in 2005 working with bird ringers studying Ural, Tengmalm's and Eagle Owls in the forests of Sweden. She has written on a range of natural history subjects and her previous books include the RSPB British Birds of Prey.
