In Owl, award-winning photographer Paul Bannick uses his intimate yet dramatic images to track four different nesting owl species--Northern Pygmy, Burrowing, Great Gray, and Snowy--throughout the course of one year and in four distinct habitats. Readers follow along at the nest as each stage in an owl's life is chronicled: courtship, mating, and nesting in spring; fledging and feeding of young in summer; dispersal and learning independence in fall; and, finally, winter's migration, unusual irruptions, and the everyday struggle to survive.
