Description

ISBN 0947430032

This monograph on the twelve owl species that inhabit the southern African subregion has been written by a leading specialist on birds of prrey and illustrated by one of South Africa’s best-known bird artists. The result is an authoritative and visually exciting book that will undoubtedly become a standard work on this group of birds. . . The eighteen large paintings are supported by forty colour sketches and numerous pencil drawings that illuminate details of anatomy, posture, behaviour, and the stages of growth of the young. All twelve species were studied and drawn from life – some of them in the field, others in captivity – and almost 1,400 preliminary drawings were done over a period of four years.’ Illustrated. 184 pages.
