Having trouble separating your scops from your screech owls, Tengmalm's from Tawny Owl or Collared and Spotted Owlets? Then this is the book for you.

Owls of the World is the ultimate resource dedicated to the identification of these charismatic, largely nocturnal birds of prey. This enhanced fixed-format of the book contains crisp, fully zoomable photography from dozens of the world's finest natural history photographers, covering all of the world's 268 species of owls. The lavish photos are accompanied by concise text on the identification, habitat, food, distribution and voice of these birds, along with accurate range maps.

What makes this e-book indispensible, however, is the inclusion of a definitive and truly comprehensive sound archive – more than 500 songs and calls, covering 90% of all the world's species and including as much subspecific variation as possible.

Optimised for tablets, this epic collection of images and sounds represent the definitive work on owls – no birder should be without it!
