This chart is both an identification guide to owls and a practical resource for investigating owl pellets.

Included are beautiful colour paintings of 5 species of owls, written descriptions of the different pellets produced by each species of owl and by other birds that could be mistake for owl pellet and an identification key to the owel pellets with skulls, jaws, teeth and other recognised bones and animal parts.

Text on the reverse side provides information on the taxonomy of owls, their adaptations for hunting, food chains and conservation status. Further identification information for each species - body length, wingspan, call, habitat, UK breeding range, main prey and conservation status - is given in a table. Guidance is also included on where pellets can be found and how they can be prepared and dissected.
