From the cover:

The owl is perhaps the most beloved, feared, and evocative of all winged creatures. Jonathan Maslow's vastly entertaining book - a blend of natural history, philosophy, and poetry - investigates the life and habitat of the nocturnal bird of prey. From winter to fall, he follows the birds to listen to their vocabulary of hoots, observe their nesting patterns, and view their powerful and silent flight.

"Splendid ... Maslow recounts how the owl, through habits rapacious, solitary, and nocturnal, has flown swiftly in human history from the familiar to the superstitious." -- Smithsonian Magazine

Originally published in 1983, reprinted in 1986.
