In Great Gray Owl: A Visual Natural History published by Mountaineers Books, Paul explores this remarkable owl’s physical features, preferred habitat, breeding cycle and hunting strategies, as well as prey and conservation issues through several dozen never-before published images. Many of these photos feature behaviors that have rarely, if ever, been captured by cameras, having mostly only been depicted elsewhere by hand-drawn illustrations and complex descriptions. Paul intentionally sought to capture these photos when no photographic images were available. The photos complement first-hand accounts from Paul’s nearly 20 years of field observation and the latest science.
Through his presentation, Paul will delve more deeply into a species previously covered more generally in his past books and presentations, as well as featuring all new images. The program combines breathtaking images, science, first-hand accounts, video and sound to inspire conservation and education and to spread awareness around the threats to these owls and what we can do to protect them.
