The Amazing World of Owls

Delve into the lives of intriguing birds in Owls: The Majestic Hunters, a collection of photographs and information by award-winning author and wildlife photographer Stan Tekiela. Perennial favorites, owls are silent and beautiful. They symbolize knowledge and mystery. Owls are among the most popular and beloved animals in the world. Yet most are nocturnal, so an owl sighting is a remarkable event worthy of remembering and sharing with others. 


Stan has spent more than 20 years traveling across the country to observe and photograph these interesting birds, from the Great Horned Owl to the highly uncommon Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl. He has documented every aspect of the owl’s life, including significant events such as courtship and mating, as well as everyday activities like hunting and sleeping.

The result is a stunning portrayal of these amazing raptors in Owls: The Majestic Hunters. Stan’s extraordinary photographs depict the birds of prey in a new, unique fashion. His fascinating text is drawn from detailed research and personal observations. Presented with headings and short paragraphs, the coffee-table book is pleasurable to browse and easy to read.

“They are strikingly beautiful creatures and incredible hunters,” says Stan. “Owls are among my favorite birds to study and to photograph.”


Unmatched by any other book on the market, Owls is a must-have for bird-watchers, wildlife enthusiasts, and nature lovers.
