House of Owls, with Tony Angell
Help us welcome Eagle Harbor favorite Tony Angell, when the artist talks about his new book, House of Owls.
For a quarter of a century, Angell and his family shared the remarkable experience of closely observing pairs of Western Screech-Owls that occupied a nesting box outside the window of their forest home. The journals in which the author recorded his observations, and the captivating drawings he created, form the heart of this compelling book -- a personal account of an artist-naturalist's life with owls. Angell's extensive illustrations show owls engaged in what owls do -- hunting, courting, raising families, and exercising their inquisitive natures -- and reveal his immeasurable respect for their secret lives and daunting challenges.
Tony Angell has won numerous writing and artistic awards for his work on behalf of nature. He has published a number of books, principally about the birds of the Northwest, including Owls, Ravens, Crows, Magpies and Jays, and Marine Birds and Mammals of Puget Sound.
