Alpine Books


| /

Owls first appeared in the fossil record about 56–65 million years ago and now live almost everywhere in the world where there is land, except Antarctica (one sighting of a single bird) and a few remote islands. Exceptional hunters, owls have superb eyesight and keen hearing, and are important to maintaining a healthy ecosystem. This 12-panel folding guide introduces you to the world of owls; describes their evolution, anatomy and behavior; and explains how they reproduce and survive in different habitats around the world. It also highlights some of the most familiar and unique species found worldwide, as well as threats to owls’ survival and what you can do to help conserve and protect these species. Perfect for citizen science programs.
