There can be few birds in Europe that have attracted authors' interest as much as the Barn Owl, and a quick look along my bookshelf reveals no less than five other titles dedicated to the species - the world's most widely distributed land bird. This book provides a general overview of what most people want to know about the species.

It starts with a look at the 18 species that are now considered to sit in the Tytonidae, and then focuses on the Western Barn Owl (as opposed to the populations in Australia and New Guinea - now known as Eastern Barn Owl). Habitats, movements, feeding and breeding are discussed as is the progress from egg to adult, and eventually death.

The book is well-illustrated with around 100 colour photographs. With a couple of exceptions these are pin-sharp and convey the birds' character very well. In particular this book is ideal for somebody wanting a non-technical account of the Barn Owl which is put together in a very readable style and at an affordable price.

This is a nicely presented hard-bound book; full of wonderful photographs of the Western Barn Owl. The pictures are supported by a crisp text, which gives you a deep appreciation for this species, albeit an introductory book. It's also part of a series of books and the others promise to as good!!
