Publisher's Summary

In this New York Times best seller, a naturalist probes the forest to comprehend the secret lives of owls. Leigh Calvez takes listeners on an adventure into the world of owls: owl-watching, avian science, and the deep forest - often in the dead of night. These birds are a bit mysterious, and that's part of what makes them so fascinating. Calvez makes the science entertaining and accessible while exploring the questions about the human-animal connection, owl obsession, habitat, owl calls, social behavior, and mythology.

Good data, very evocative

The data about the subject was current, thorough, and extremely well researched. I like everything about the book very much. The author delved into anthropomorphism towards the end, although I admit I would have done the same in her circumstance. Good read.

Terrible narrator, book might be great otherwise

The most stilted narrator ever! Can't be improved by increasing playback speed to 1.25x. Very disappointing since I really like owls and natural history books in general.

worst narrator ever

The story is great but I can't listen to it. The narrator has such a grating voice.
