內容簡介

內容簡介 A rare invitation into the mysterious lives of owls around the world, with spectacularly revealing photographs and fascinating details "This book is sure to delight any nature lover."--Wall Street Journal "Thank you, David Tipling, for the sumptuous, endearing and terrifying photographs of these uncanny creatures. . . . And Mike Unwin's authoritative descriptions of the owl way of life are fascinating."--Dominique Browning, New York Times Book Review Perhaps no other creature has so compelling a gaze as the owl. Its unblinking stare mesmerizes; its nocturnal lifestyle suggests secrets and mystery. This lavishly illustrated book celebrates owls from every corner of the world and offers abundant details on fifty-three of the most striking and interesting species, from the tiny Elf Owl of southwestern American deserts to the formidable Blakiston's Fish Owl, the largest of all owls. Mike Unwin has long studied and admired these remarkable birds from cold northern forests to tropical rivers and beyond. He explains how owls evolved into the supreme feathered predators of the night, and he examines their breeding and hunting behaviors, unusual calls, and the cultural myths and superstitions that surround different species. More than two hundred dramatic color photographs in the wild, taken or selected by David Tipling, capture the wondrous beauty of each owl and the drama of life in its own home region.
