'Messages from an Owl' - Book by Max Turman
|Short review by Deane Lewis Updated 2012-08-17 Created 2002-02-04|
This book follows the life of a Great Horned Owl "Stripey", who was
abandoned as a 4 week old chick, and raised and subsequently released and
observed by Author and Zoologist Max Terman for a study in Animal behaviour.
This thoroughly enjoyable book successfully combines scientific observation,
reasoning and speculation with the joys and rewards that relationships
between humans and animals can bring. Although a factual account, "Messages
from an Owl" reads much like a novel, complete with twists in the plot and
happy and sad moments. I highly recommend this book, not only for people
interested in biology but for anyone who would enjoy following the life and
times of two companions, an Owl and a Man.
