Understanding Owls Summary

Understanding Owls: Biology, Management, Breeding, Training by Jemima Parry-Jones, MBE

With their glowing, unblinking eyes they seem to notice everything--and to have the wisdom to understand it all, too. From biology and taxonomy, to housing, feeding, incubation, and rearing, to training and flying, a master breeder and trainer of owls shares her extensive knowledge of these nighttime creatures--both in the wild and in captivity. A general overview covers their anatomy, and a morphology details the various subfamilies of owl. Find out about the role their specially adapted--and extremely beautiful feathers--play in aiding their "silent flight"; the incredible variety of noises they make (and how these can help you identify a breed); the intricacies of their behavior patterns; and the way the babies are hatched, fed, and nurtured. Here's what you need for those first attempts at breeding, and to train and hunt with your birds of prey. Dozens of remarkable full-color photos provide a close-up look at barn owls, Eagle owls, fishing owls, tawny owls, and snowy owls. 160 pages (30 in color), 120 b/w illus., 7 1/2 x 10 1/4.
