"...pure joy. Martin Windrow shows us the essence of a wild animal in a story as informative as a scientific paper, but much more fun to read. Owls are among the world's most interesting creatures, and to see one up close and in detail as we do here, is a valuable experience that will appeal to readers of every kind."—Elizabeth Marshall Thomas
