The Book of North American Owls
by Helen Roney Sattler, Jean Day Zallinger (Illustrator)
Humans have long regarded owls with a mixture of fear and fascination. Since most owls are nocturnal, and many live in remote habitats, they were not well studied until the past two decades. The owl remains a symbol of wisdom; however, the birds' keen senses, hunting ability, and contributions to their ecosystem are equally impressive. 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. The comprehensive glossary includes all of the twenty-one North American species. 
by Floyd Scholz, Tad Merrick (Photographer)

North American Owls: Journey Through a Shadowed World
North American Owls: Journey Through a Shadowed World
by Jim Burns
Book Description
There are 19 species of owls in North America and a spectacularly-illustrated chapter is devoted to each in this intriguing natural history narrative. Author Jim Burns takes the reader on a journey of discovering owls during his travels across the United States. His two rules of owling—that owls never appear when and where they are expected, and that owls always appear when and where they are least expected—set the tone for this informative and exciting excursion into the world of owls. The essays are combined with stunning full-color images of these elusive birds, and as these birds are so often heard and not seen, an audio CD is part of this complete owl package, showcasing the magnificent calls of these beautiful and mysterious birds. Jim Burns has been photographing birds for over 20 years. Widely known and appreciated in the birding world, he has been published in Birding, Birders World, and the Cactus Wrendition.
