From Minervas sacred companion to the intellectual leader of 100 Acre Wood in Winnie the Pooh, these most mysterious members of the kingdom of birds have long been revered as feathery embodiments of wisdom and vigilance, as well as admired for their breathtaking beauty. With 40 gorgeous portraits, Beautiful Owls takes the best of the strigiform family, offering up such stunning examples as the Abyssinian Eagle, the Sunda Scops, and the adorable Pygmy Burrowing Owl, every one shown in stunning high-definition detail.
