THE SNOWY OWL SCIENTIST Scientists in the Field

by | Read by Mark Wilson

Children Ages 10+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrator Mark Wilson treks onto the Arctic tundra with scientist Denver Holt to learn what it takes to be a researcher of snowy owls. Wilson's performance is conversational yet edged with an appropriate tinge of awe for both these powerful birds and the challenges Holt faces. Although aimed at kids, the pacing and tone of this audiobook feel accessible for adults, too. Wilson seamlessly weaves multiple fascinating sidebars into Holt's research story without missing a beat: Subtle differences in feathers distinguish male and female owls, and don't believe the urban legend created by an old Disney movie that lemmings leap off cliffs to their deaths. Wilson is a nature photographer, so, not surprisingly, the accompanying 59-page pdf--full of beautiful photographs of owls, locals, and the Alaskan landscape--is definitely worth a peek.
