Timber Press just posted the updated cover for The Screech Owl Companion, complete with info on ordering an advance copy.

Packed with fascinating information and excellent photography, The Screech Owl Companion is the perfect book for anyone who loves Eastern and Western Screech Owls. There's even an entire chapter on squirrels.

From the back cover: "Astounding, thorough, and wide-ranging, this book will take you into the world of the beloved screech owl. It delivers everything you could want or need to welcome these appealing, diminutive, feathery, fierce creatures as your neighbors."
     -Lillian Stokes, coauthor of The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America

The publication date is Oct. 17. Co-author Scott Weston and I can't wait.
