Description

Owls are a hoot! Whether they're hunting in the forest or hiding in a prairie burrow, these birds are full of tricks. Did you know that burrowing owlets can imitate rattlesnakes to scare away their enemies? Or that saw-whet owls can throw their voices from tree to tree, like ventriloquists? From hoots to spooks, Diane Swanson reveals the mischievous world of owls in the wild. About the series: Each book in the Welcome to the World of Series introduces children to wildlife through color photographs, lively description and amazing facts.
