WHAT AN OWL KNOWS The New Science of the World's Most Enigmatic Birds

by | Read by Jennifer Ackerman

Contemporary Culture • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Jennifer Ackerman is clearly enthralled with owls. Every word--written and spoken--embodies her fascination. She takes us on a wide-ranging exploration of their world, the researchers who study them, and even their symbolism. Owl species vary in so many ways: in size, food sources, geography, migration, calls, and just about everything else. Ackerman ensures that the listener is captivated by all of them with her engaging performance suffused with enthusiasm and wonder. Owls are difficult to study--hard to spot, silent on the wing, and fiercely defensive. One researcher was hit so hard in the head after getting too close that the owl's talon broke off in his scalp. Owls are in trouble, and Ackerman's graceful plea for action and protection is clear. A.B. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
