More About The House of Owls by Tony Angell; Robert Michael Pyle
 
 
 
Overview
Tony Angell, master artist and naturalist, offers an intimate account of owls he has observed, admired, and depicted for decades

For a quarter century, Tony Angell and his family shared the remarkable experience of closely observing pairs of western screech owls that occupied a nesting box outside their forest home. The journals the author recorded his observations in, and the captivating drawings he created, form the heart of this compelling book--a personal account of an artist-naturalist's life with owls. Angell's extensive illustrations show owls engaged in what owls do--hunting, courting, raising families, and exercising their inquisitive natures--and reveal his immeasurable respect for their secret lives and daunting challenges.

Angell discusses the unique characteristics that distinguish owls from other bird species and provides a fascinating overview of the impact owls have had on human culture and thought. He also offers detailed scientific descriptions of the nineteen species of owls found in North America, as well as their close relatives elsewhere. Always emphasizing the interaction of humans and owls, the author affirms by his own example the power of these birds both to beguile and to inspire.
