A wonderful introduction to the 21 species of owls that live in North America. Helen Sattler's love and respect for owls began with the barn owl in her family's barn when she was a child. She explains why the owls are important and what we can do to help protect them. Each species is covered in detail in a separate section. Jean Zallinger provides helpful illustrations in watercolor and pencil. This award-winning title is a great addition to any young bird-lover's library! Paperback for ages 9-12.
