About the Book
Fresh from award winning photographer and first time author Declan Travis, 'Barred Life: Summers with the Owls of Whidbey Island' delivers a breathtaking view of the beautiful and controversial owl species Strix varia. Although far from rare and increasingly visible in public spaces, this look at barred owls is remarkable for the intimacy, boldness, and charm of its images. Along with unique access to adorable young fledglings, Travis fills the book with a vibrant and colorful sense of season, wildlife, and island living. A personal journey illustrated in over 200 photographs, 'Barred Life' will have you dreaming of summer...and looking for owls! "Gonzo" Paperback Edition
