Sinopsis: This comprehensive work covering all the owls of North America, including Mexico and the Caribbean, is the newest addition to the trusted Peterson Reference Guide series.
Owls are perhaps the most intriguing of all birds — instantly recognizable and endlessly fascinating. Whether viewed as symbols of wisdom or bad omens, these unusual birds have had a hold on human imagination for millennia.
Heard more often than seen, many owls are best identified by vocalizations; this is the only owl guide to include access to a collection of recordings. It is also the only North American owl book to include the Caribbean, covering 39 species of owls, including many little-known tropical species.
With detailed information about identification, calls, habitat, nesting, and behavior, this Reference Guide has the most up-to-date information about natural history, biology, ecology, migration, and conservation status. It is heavily illustrated with hundreds of color photos, and includes the most accurate color range maps ever presented, showing breeding, wintering, and migration routes.
This is a definitive work, useful for serious birders and ornithologists but accessible for the non-expert.

Peterson Reference Guide to Owls of North America and the Caribbean
Owls have been a source of fascination and mystery throughout human history. This book is the most comprehensive, up-to-date guide to the 39 species of owls found in Canada, the United States, Mexico, and the islands of the Caribbean, covering their nesting and migratory ecology, systematics and taxonomy, diet, behavior, distribution, vocalizations, conservation status and more. From widespread, well-known species such as Great Horned and Barn Owls, to poorly understood tropical species like the Crested Owl, Stygian Owl, and Bare-legged Owl, this book is the definitive reference to these enigmatic night-hunters.
