Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Complete Book of North American Owls offers a rare, up-close look at one of the worldand#8217;s most intriguing birds. From the silent, lethal swoop of a great horned owl as it swerves between northern pines to make a kill, to the pert bobbing of a pygmy owl as it focuses on an intruder, the habits of each species are vividly described.

Each species has its own extensive introduction that explains its hunting techniques, courtship rituals, nesting habits, territorial calls, and specialized traits.

Six pages of stunning full-color images devoted to each owl capture the elusive bird in its various forms from juvenile to adult, male/female, and also in flight.

The Complete Book of North American Owls celebrates these dramatic and stealthy nocturnal hunters and showcases twenty owl species in extensive detail.

About the Author

James Duncan, born in Montrand#233;al, Quand#233;bec, obtained a Ph.D. in 1992 from the University of Manitoba for research on the Great Gray Owl. He worked as a conservation zoologist for the Saskatchewan and Manitoba Conservation Data Centres 1992-1999 after which he took on the role of Manager of the Manitoba Biodiversity, Habitat and Endangered Species Section of the Wildlife Branch. Currently, James is the Director of the Wildlife Branch of Manitoba Conservation where he is active in local, national and international biodiversity conservation initiatives including species at risk. He has researched owl for over 26 years and has published scientific papers, books and symposium proceedings on owls from around the world. He is also an adjunct professor at the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg where he supervises graduate research students who study owls. James claims that his job is simply a way to support his obsessive habit of studying owls with his wife and fellow zoologist, Patsy. Together they have banded over 2,000 owls in Manitoba.
