Great Horned Owlsby Doug Wechsler
Synopses & Reviews
Dr. Doug Wechsler, a wildlife biologist, ornithologist, and photographer, has written this wonderful series on birds of prey. Each book includes an introduction to a bird: its size, color, and habitat; its hunting, eating, and migration habits; how and where it builds its nest, and its survival strategies. Clear, accessible, and often humorous text is combined with spectacular photography from VIREO, the Visual Resources for Ornithology, and The Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, to create books that will delight and inform your students.
If your eyes were as big as an owl's eyes, they would be the size of tennis balls. Wildlife biologist Doug Wechsler fills this wonderful book on great horned owls with wild facts that are guaranteed to hold a young reader's interest. Beautiful photography and practical tips about how and where to spot these gigantic but shy birds make this book both entertaining and informative.
Describes the physical characteristics, behavior, and habitat of the great horned owl.
