Exploring the World of Owls by Tracy Read


Exploring the World of Owls by Tracy Read

The haunting sound of a distant hoot after the sun has set, may be the closest many of us ever get to an owl. Its secret nocturnal life is one of the things that makes this ancient family of birds so fascinating to humans.

But of the roughly 200 owl species worldwide, 19 make their homes across North America. These birds of prey display noticeable differences in size and markings, but they also share many physical traits and living skills.

How do owls capture prey and defend themselves? How are their wings designed for silent, gliding flight? How do owls conceal themselves from predators? Young readers will learn the answers to these questions, and much more, in the beautifully illustrated Exploring the World of Owls.
