The Book of North American Owls has a comprehensive glossary that includes all of the North American species. Humans have long regarded owls with a mixture of fear and fascination.

Packed with scrupulously accurate information and meticulous watercolor illustrations, The Book of North American Owls covers owl classification and history, habitat, life cycle–—and the complex relationship between owls and humans.
