The Owl and the Woodpecker

The Owl and the Woodpecker
Exploring the continent from the arctic tundra to the mountains of the West, from arid lands of the Southwest to the great plains of the interior, from the forests of the eastern U.S to the Canadian Boreal, including urban and suburban habitats throughout the U.S and Canada, Seattle-based nature photographer, Paul Bannick, captures all 41 North American species of two iconic bird families. With a foreword by Tony Angell, and audio recordings by Martyn Stewart, The Owl and the Woodpecker features stunning photography, captured through thousands of hours in the field observing owl and woodpecker behaviors.
Bannick’s images all feature “wild” animals, unlike many books, particularly those on owls, which include captive animals or wildlife models. From familiar birds like the Northern Flicker and Great-Horned Owl to rare ones like the Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl, Red-Cockaded Woodpecker and Northern Spotted Owl Bannick provides an intimate look at each within the habitat it is most indicative of. Complete with a field guide to North American owl and woodpecker species, Bannick’s photo journey is both comprehensive and visually rewarding.
Paul Bannick is an award-winning photographer, specializing in natural history imagery. An experienced naturalist and outdoor educator, Paul creates many of his images while kayaking, hiking, or snowshoeing in the Pacific Northwest. His work has featured in numerous books and magazines, including The Seattle Times’ Pacific Northwest Magazine, Sunset and PhotoMedia, as well as on interpretive signs in both state and national parks throughout the West. Paul is the official photographer for Birdnote, a popular radio show found on KPLU and several other NPR stations. He is the Director of Development for Conservation Northwest, and lives in Seattle, Washington.
