About the Author

Jim Wright is a prize-winning writer and the author of "The Bird Watcher," a long-running column featured in New Jersey's The Record and USA Today.

He is currently leading a grassroots campaign to ban the rat poisons that kill owls and other wildlife. He lives in Allendale, NJ. Scott Weston has been involved with birding and owling for over 35 years, going on predawn Audubon Christmas bird counts since he was 11. An accomplished photographer, Scott has contributed to local and national publications, including Cornell's All About Backyard Birds. He has a B.S. degree in fisheries and aquaculture from the University of Rhode Island. He has been working and publishing in this field for over 20 years with Salem State University.

The surprising thing is that you probably do. If you have any interest in owls--and who doesn't--this is a book you'll want to own. The Screech Owl Companion is filled with useful information and wonderful pictures. If you're interested in owls of any kind, especially screech owls, this is a must have book.

"An armchair naturalist will find this book filled with interesting facts and folklore about this feathered denizen of backyard and nearby woodland edge. For a closer acquaintance with the screech owl, Wright and Weston provide detailed instructions on installing owl boxes, their construction and placement, and the installation of a nest cam. And they give important tips (and cautions) for photographing owls."
--Dorcas MacClintock, author of Animals Observed: A Look at Animals in Art
