Lear's Owl

We just heard a talk at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History given by Wendy Wasman, CMNH librarian. This would be a welcome addition tohang on our walls with birds, butterflies, and other wildlife.

Lear's Owl

We just heard about this beautiful book at a talk at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. The speaker, Librarian Wendy Wasman, had a volume to show us. Beautiful! Would love to add this to our pictures of birds, butterflies and other interesting wildlife that hang on our walls.

Our Elusive Owl

There is an elusive owl that frequents our courtyard in the evenings when it is dark outside. We can hear its hoot, but we can never see it. My husband has nicknamed it "Hooter". We don't let our cat, Max, outside at night because we are afraid Hooter will eat Max, not the other way around! I imagine Hooter looking like the owl in Lear's plate.

We have owls here in the City

We have owls here in the City of Houston. We hear more than see them.

I banded saw-whet owls with my daughter at midnight in a reserve and it was one of the highlights of my life. Owls are spectacular creatures.

Owls always remind me of my

Owls always remind me of my husband; they're his favourite bird. Minerva's, too...

I am a third grade teacher

I am a third grade teacher who has been teaching my classes about owls for several years. We study different owls and write booklets about them along with dioramas and they make fabric owls. This is after we have gotten up close at a local nature center that does owl presentations and owl pellet dissection. My class would love this in our classroom.

Better than the Internet!

Our children use the internet for all their information gathering. This book would show them that there is another way to "see" & study nature. It is a valuable piece of art!

Love!

I absolutely love the eagle owl! I am a volunteer at the Center for BIrds of Prey in Awendaw, SC. What a fun adventure for David, searching for all 80 prints!
