Everyone loves the beauty, mystery and charm of owls, but science is still unlocking many of the secrets of owl biology and ecology. Join Scott Weidensaul, author of the Peterson Reference Guide to Owls of North America and the Caribbean, for an exploration of the weird and little-known world of these nocturnal hunters, and the exciting new discoveries being made not only about weird tropical species like the stygian owl, but even the most common and widespread owls in American backyards. Weidensaul will also share discoveries from his quarter-century of owl research with species like snowy owls and northern saw-whet owls.
