The Snowy Owl

The Snowy Owl
Not available
The Snowy Owl - possibly the world's sexiest bird - needs little
introduction. This massive white owl breeds throughout the Arctic,
wherever there are voles or lemmings to hunt, from Scandinavia through
northern Russia to Canada and Greenland. Southerly movements in winter
see North American birds travel as far south as the northern United
States, while infrequent vagrants on the Shetlands and other northern
isles are a magnet for birders.


The Snowy Owl gives this popular bird the full Poyser treatment, with
sections on morphology, distribution, palaeontology and evolution,
habitat, breeding, diet, population dynamics, movements, interspecific
relationships and conservation, supported by some fabulous photography.
A major strength is the availability to the authors of Russian
literature, which is generally out of reach for Western scientists.
