An Evening Presentation with Wildlife Photographer Paul Bannick

“Owl: A Year in the Lives of North American Owls”

The Friends of the Library proudly presents an evening with international award-winning wildlife photographer Paul Bannick. Bannick’s presentation will feature video, sound, stories from the field, and several dozen remarkable photographs from his new book “Owl: A Year in the Lives of North American Owls.” Paul uses intimate yet dramatic images to follow owls in their distinct habitats through the course of one year. Each stage in an owl’s life is chronicled through rare documentation: courtship, mating, and nesting in spring; fledging and feeding of young in summer; dispersal and gaining independence in fall; and, finally, winter’s migrations and competitions for food. His presentation will show how owls use the unique resources available to them in each habitat to face those challenges.

The evening will be introduced by the Friends of the Lopez Library as part of their annual meeting. Paul Bannick will be selling and signing books after his presentation. All library programs are free and open to the public.
