Here is the most complete collection of visual reference material on North American owls currently available. Over 700 superb color photographs of 16 species of owls delineate all aspects of wing design, plumage patterns, flight characteristics, eye structure — in short, everything on the appearance of the owl.
Scholz includes a section on carving and painting techniques and a gallery of his carvings.
An essential reference for carvers, an important resource for ornithologists, and a fine introduction to these magnificent birds for the rest of us.
