Paul Bannick presents Owl: A Year in the Lives of North American Owls

Date & Time
Thursday, October 25, 2018

Award winning photographer Paul Bannick will present his new program at the Eastside Audubon Society featuring video, sound, stories from the field, and several dozen new images from his brand new book: Owl: A Year in the Lives of North American Owls. Paul uses intimate yet dramatic images to follow owls through the course of one year and in their distinct habitats. His talk will focus on the four seasons of territory, as each stage in an owl’s life is chronicled through rare images: courtship, mating, and nesting in spring; fledging and feeding of young in summer; dispersal and gaining independence in fall; and, finally, winter migrations and competition for food. The presentation will show how owls use the unique resources available to them in each habitat to face those challenges.

Owl is a stunning follow-up to Bannick’s bestselling title, The Owl and the Woodpecker, giving bird lovers yet another gorgeous photographic tribute, engaging natural history, and a compelling call to preserve the habitats that sustain these most iconic of birds. Nearly ten years of working in some of the most remote parts of the continent, at the darkest hours of the day, tracking owls as they move through their lives has rewarded Paul with striking images that he will share with us on October 25.
