Whoooo is ready for another awesome giveaway? Since we’re celebrating owls all month long, there’s no better book to give away than The Complete Book of North American Owls, an amazing compendium of these amazing birds. Are you ready to win a copy?
The Book to Win
The Complete Book of North American Owls is exactly as it sounds – a thorough, beautiful overview of these alluring birds. The extensive, 40-page introduction offers a primer on what an owl is, how they are adapted to their unique ecological niches, and all about their lives, from hunting and prey to courtship, nesting, and raising chicks, as well as just how critical conservation is for every owl.
Forty-six different owl species are profiled in the book – every recognized owl species in North and Central America. More robust than a field guide, however, each species account is written with engaging text and accompanied by one or more stunning photos of the bird. More familiar and widespread owls are featured in longer, more detailed accounts with additional photography, and each species profile includes an appropriate range map.
Enter the Giveaway!
The lucky winner of this giveaway, randomly chosen from all eligible entries, will receive their own softcover copy of The Complete Book of North American Owls. To enter, just answer the following question in the comments.
What owl(s) have you seen in person?
Even if your answer is none, you can still win and “meet” these terrific birds! You must, however, include a valid email address to be contacted if you win, and the contest is only open to participants in the United States. The book will ship from Be Your Own Birder, and by entering, all participants agree to the Giveaway Guidelines. Entries will close on October 27, 2020, and the winner will be randomly selected at that time. Good luck, and happy owling!
The entry period has ended and comments are now closed.
I have seen Great Horned Owls at my work.
Only seen a few in the wild in Decatur GA and Ashland City TN
Love Owls. Have seen Great Horned Owls. and have at least one pair, maybe two in my neighborhood. Burrowing Owls living around a water reservoir not to far from my neighbor hood. And a Screech owl (before it was split into Eastern and Western species). There are a total of at least 14 species of Owls found in Colorado and they are on my bucket list.
Great Horned, Eastern Screech, Barred and Barn
I saw 2 baby Screech Owls at a bird rescue demo – both looked like they were having a ‘bad hair day’….adorable.
And I saw a Great Horned Owl in Sarasota, FL not far up in a pine tree holding onto it’s meal…a squirrel. We stared at each other for several minutes.
Great Horned Owl on our property outside of Butte Montana
Great Horned Owls, Eastern Screech Owls, I’ve heard Barred Owls while camping but never managed to see one.
I have seen a Great Horned Owl that nest every year at a local park. I have gotten to see the mom and the babies for the past several years. I would love to see more types of Owls, since I am a huge Bird Nerd and would like to see a Barred Owl and more also.
Great Horned Owl, Barn Owl, Burrowing Owl, Barred Owl, Western Screech-Owl.
My grandsons & I released Saw-whet Owls. We have also seen Snowy owl, Great Horned Owl, barred Owl, long eared owl.
Also with my oldest we saw short eared & great grey. Whoot whoot!!
At educational Owl program we saw eastern screech & Eurasian Eagle Owl.
Screech, barn, long eared, great horned, burrowing. Far best was the snowy owl in Brooklyn NY. At first glance, I thought it was a plastic bag on the broken cement parking lot.
we have a pair of Great Horned Owls that pass thru our trailer park, here in Mesa, every once in awhile.
Barred Owl – in Frick Park, Pittsburgh, PA
I have seen Barred Owls many times, Snowy Owls a few times, and Great Horned Owls and Northern Saw-whet Owls a couple of times. I have even seen a Boreal Owl, but only once. (The Great Grey Owl, Barn Owl and Eastern Screech Owl are all on my wish list!)
I have seen a Great Horned Owl, a Great Gray Owl, a Hawk Owl and a Snowy Owl who watched me work one shift! Can you guess where I live 😉
I would hear the “who cooks for you Owl” every day at my property in NE KY
and it made my day.
My favorite is the Screech Owl, not sure why because they are all so beautiful, but the little guys always win my heart, n
The only owl I’ve seen in the wild is the Barred Owl, which I saw only a few years ago after living in the country for some time. I hear them all the time and it was great to finally see one!
I’ve seen barred owls, great horned owls, and northern spotted owls (part of a recovery program in BC) in person.
I have seen Barred (I always think “bard” because they are so poetic), Saw-whet, Short-eared, Great Horned and Eastern Screech owls. They are all my favorites.
