Synopses & Reviews
As old-growth forest is increasingly lost to logging, the spotted owl population is declining precipitously in both Canada and the U.S. This beautiful book is a must for anyone who cares about the preservation of nature and the fate of this emblem of the old-growth forest. Jared Hobbs' stunning images capture these nocturnal hunters in flight with wings spread, at rest on moss-covered branches, or tending to their young. Master birder Richard Cannings explores the natural history of the owls, the threats to their survival, and the attempts at their recovery.
