Owls feature in many cultures as symbols of wisdom or harbingers of death, inspiring writers, artists, historians and naturalists. Fully illustrated with colour photographs, this comprehensive natural history covers their origins, anatomy and behaviour before examining each species in detail. Drawing on the British Trust for Ornithology's vast database, it explains the breeding ecology, dispersal, diet, vocalizations and population changes of these mysterious nocturnal creatures.
