Staff Reviews

Mr. Slaght has discovered Fish Owls and wants us to know them too. So he takes us to the forests of eastern Russia, north of Vladivostok, to trap, tag, and follow them. And these are no cute little owls - six plus foot wingspans, two feet tall, huge talons, and - when you see the pictures - not really cute. These are big, reclusive, stunning birds. Finding them is not just difficult, it is dangerous in the sub-zero of the Siberian winter, and the partial, slushy thaw of the early spring with Amur tigers strolling about. And not just the owls are characters - this team of searchers and helpers are just as ornery and fascinating. Loved this devotion to a bird that we would not want to meet in a dark alley, but enhances our amazement at what is around us - lovely.
