Dear Gentle Readers,
An outstanding collection of owl photographs by the wonderful Paul Bannick are presently on exhibit in the Davis Education and Visitor Center at Riverside Fellowship Gardens.
If you get a chance to visit any day except Monday, when they are closed, you should go!
Paul Bannick is an author and wildlife photographer with a special interest in birds of North America and their habitat. The images here are from his book, The Owl and the Woodpecker, which was published by The Mountaineers Books in 2008. The book was a Washington State Book Award finalist and continues to be a best-selling bird book.
Paul's photographs showed owls as I never saw them before and came me a new appreciation for their beauty.
I claim nothing here as my own. My photos of his photos culminated a lovely day on the park. Paul's work is important for the environment and the owl species survival. Please follow him at
